\o/ First step of the integration of my #maven-build-system into #guix done. I now install maven and its dependencies in a maven repository. Next steps are adding the basic maven plugins, and the maven-build-system itself, then I'll send all these patches for review :)
My current work is available on this branch:
Nice short (~16m) talk on build system security – trusting trust attacks, reproducible builds & bootstrappable builds.
Guix Further Reduces Bootstrap Seed to 25%

How #bootstrappable is your distro?
New #emacs #blog post: "State of Emacs Lisp on Guile": https://emacsninja.com/posts/state-of-emacs-lisp-on-guile.html
#Guile is a #Scheme that gets a disproportionate amount of attention when mentioned with Emacs in a sentence. I'm sick of the occasional r/emacs or emacs-devel thread with little facts and much speculation, so here's some original research of what you can and can not do with Guile's Emacs Lisp implementation.
today I developed a #MirageOS unikernel which serves the contents of a git remote via HTTP(S), including let's encrypt certificate provisioning. A test instance is setup at https://test.nqsb.io -- code is at https://github.com/hannesm/unipi (includes various protocols: git, ssh, tls, http, acme). it is < 300 lines of application code :D and even provides HTTP cache headers (last-modified / etag) :D A webhook is available that fetches the git remote (to update the contents) :D
They don't mention our names (@NLnetFDN), yet they recognise and write about the importance of our #bootstrapping

Today, we discover the beauty of hyperlinks: https://guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/html_node/Using-the-Configuration-System.html . Yup, you can click on the #Guix symbols in code snippets to jump to their doc!
#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!
Guix is getting Hurd support and hopes to make it the first-class option https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2020/deprecating-support-for-the-linux-kernel/
