#Guix 'R Us

A Guix channel, maintained by the whereiseveryone community.

Project page here.

#Manifesto

We hope everyone will volunteer and join us in a concerted global effort to give free computing and society the attention, help, and chance it needs to succeed.

We have to nurture a community that takes the responsibility and compassion to pass down and share exceptional education and technology to those who might push free society forward into the next generations of the post-digital era.

The odds are against us if we don't.

Guix is the tool for this arduous work.

#Goals

  • Yet to be merged upstream.
  • In alpha or beta stage of development.
  • Customized to certain use-cases.
  • Nightly releases.
