I prefer using guix-devel for discussing patches and want to keep usingit normally. I see "guix-patches" more of a "package incubator",especially for newcomers. For regular contributors using "guix-devel" toask for feedback before pushing is fine too IMO.

In my opinion *most* patches (especially patches to add packages) oughtto be sent to “guix-patches”. “guix-devel” is for discussions of plans,features, and more involved changes.
What’s great about “guix-patches” is that we can much more easily keeptrack of the patches that are submitted in this way. With “guix-devel”discussions it’s hard to figure out if further action is required.
@ng0: The patch looks good to me, though I’d prefer if it includedadditional instructions that are specific to patch submission to adebbugs-backed list. It’s worth noting that patches be either sent inone direct email or as replies to a ticket acknowledgement. Thisprevents flooding of the tracker.
Do you think you could add language like that? Just a sentence or twowould probably be sufficient.

That's not the intention of guix-patches, and it never was. Please readthe annoncement email and the discussion before it.

Apparently yes, as people still send patches to guix-devel and at thetime when I wrote this patch were not aware of guix-patches.

I agree. It would be good to mention “guix-patches” in HACKING. To me,patches that are in “guix-patches” have a much lower risk to be drownedout by other discussions.
