Got a first review for my 10-year-reproducibility-challenge submission: https://github.com/ReScience/submissions/issues/32#issuecomment-633739558
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? :-)
I should be working more on the #Guix build coordinator... but I'm just watching it build things...
Another month passes, and I've sent another overly lengthy email to #guix -devel on the subject of data.guix.gnu.org 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 #outreachy internship, which I'm particularly excited about :)
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:
Hey #Guix, what developments do you want to see next?
Some web stuff is pretty bad, I'm trying to build the frontend assets for #Grafana, and it's using more than 2GB of memory, and 1GB of swap...
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: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guix-devel/2020-04/msg00172.html Testing is a good way to help us, to try out a new GNU+#Linux distro, or simply to get into #freesoftware!
#Guix + #Hurd in a box: we did it! :-) https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2020/a-hello-world-virtual-machine-running-the-hurd/ @janneke
#GNU #Guix to deprecate support for the Linux kernel: https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2020/deprecating-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 http://data.guix.gnu.org/ :
I'm pretty excited about some of the speed improvements, and it's nice that generating the database dumps is finally automated!
