Got a first review for my 10-year-reproducibility-challenge submission:

Highlight: “The current code is based on Scheme, a variant of LISP, which is notoriously very readable, nearly as it were a text in english.” See? :-)

#Guix #Scheme #Lisp

JavaScript on webpages, bringing all important usability issues and bugs to your browser.

In all seriousness, Grafana is more difficult to use now there's more JavaScript trying to "help" you.

Challenge for tonight was to work out why the Guix build tool I'm working on isn't building things, and this query appears to do the trick 😁

I wrote it as one long line, I used some (not great) online SQL formatter for sharing.

git shortlog -s --since=last-month | wc -l
⇒ 94

An all-time high number of monthly #GNU #Guix contributors!

I should be working more on the build coordinator... but I'm just watching it build things...

Another month passes, and I've sent another overly lengthy email to -devel on the subject of and the Guix Data Service.

The highlight this month is that Danjela is going to be working on the Guix Data Service as part of an internship, which I'm particularly excited about :)

Sometimes having a 34inch wide monitor is really practical...

Finally submitted my replication of a 13-year-old article to #ReScience, largely for the excitement of creating a complete #Guix pipeline from source code to PDF:

Some web stuff is pretty bad, I'm trying to build the frontend assets for , and it's using more than 2GB of memory, and 1GB of swap...

Not the first time I've installed or the graphical installer, but I'm excited to use the installer again for the 1.1 release!

#GNU #Guix 1.1.0 is out!

14K commits by 201 people since the last release! It’s been a lot of work but I think it’s a beautiful release. :-)

#GNU #Guix 1.1.0 release candidate available: Testing is a good way to help us, to try out a new GNU+#Linux distro, or simply to get into #freesoftware!

#GNU #Guix to deprecate support for the Linux kernel: This is becoming possible thanks to the hard work put into supporting the #Hurd in Guix over the years!

Another month, another update on :

I'm pretty excited about some of the speed improvements, and it's nice that generating the database dumps is finally automated!
