📢 A first RC (Release Candidate) for the upcoming GNU Guix 1.3.0 release is now available for testing.
Please report success, failure, and annoyances in this
There’s also a few more days to improve translation of the upcoming #GNU #Guix release into your language!
You can translate messages printed by commands, package descriptions, documentation, and the web site.
Among the highlights are the inclusion of a bundled mini-GMP, a new ‘read’ in #Scheme, and various optimizations.
#GNURadio’s Board and General Assembly agree to join the #GNU Assembly as member project! 👏🏽
It’s exciting, and it’s also a great lesson of collective decision-making from a mature and well-organized project.
A big thank you to @cwebber for an insightful look into #ActivityPub and its exciting evolution & future (migrating and surviving content & identities amongst others) during the 2nd webinar on ActivityPub for Administrations!
Also exciting to hear Robert Riemann from the European Data Protection Supervisor lay out their plans to join the #fediverse (Mastodon & Peertube are expected). Important to understand the requirements & expectations of EU-institutions for (self-hosting) new tech.
Le livre de recettes #Guix est dispo en français, grâce à l’infatigable @roptat :
Carl Dong wrote a great guide on the many ways of getting #Guix installed on a “foreign distro”:
Today we're kicking off the #GNU Assembly!
This is a new umbrella for GNU people seeking transparent decision-making and built around consensus. It's the result of a decade of struggle to make #GNU inclusive, transparent, and community-driven.
#GNU contributors: consider joining!
#FreeSoftware activists: help us spread the word!

Chris Marusich and @lle_bout write on their journey porting #GNU #Guix to #POWER9 and what it means for user freedom:
The post also explains how they went about porting and what #reproducibility issues they faced.
Last but not least: this work is now merged! 👏🏽
“guile's reader, in guile”:
Mes camarades et moi organisons les 17 et 18 mai un atelier sur la #reproductibilité des environnements logiciels, avec 7 interventions de scientifiques et d'admins sys :

I did it! I merged #Guix code that includes 4- and 6-year old commits, no less, and that have been rebased a number of times.
It's about using G-expressions all the way down, including for packages. Finishing a transition started 6 years ago, yay!
Just fixed a bug by throwing more code at it…
Put this way it sounds questionable, but in this case it’s a step forward that had to be made anyway.
