Well, the scenario I outlined assumed running from a 'guix git checkout'On 05/05/2017 at 18:01 Catonano writes:

because I had the impression that you were running that way. But it may
be overkill for many users and it really might be better to create a
demo using a 'guix pull' setup. This could focus on using emacs-guix to
find, build, install, and inspect packages.
It could also demonstrate
editing the system config, reconfiguring the system, creating a user
manifest and running 'guix package -m user.scm'
I hope someone reading this will suggest such a package ;-)

Right. And I am happy to share my git checkout config with you if that
But... would you want to first do the 'git pull' based demo?
