As you might have noticed (or not), is closing down soon.
Read more on thesubject.
So we need to move yet another bunch of packages to where ever they movednow. The sources I mean. And maybe notify upstream in case you feel likeit.
I will open this as a bug so that it can be closed once it is done.Please close this bug once all packages have been moved.

Packages are few in number:

I am not user of gdsl so I do not know if there is another location.Ricardo? As you added it (2016), do you know?
Christopher, you have recently updated "guile-dbi", do you knowanother location?

In both case, I propose to place them in any Gitlab or Githublocation. What do you think?

All the best,simon

[PATCH 0/1] Fix unreachable gdsl package
(address .
The mention of the closing down is reported in bug #25913 Therefore, the package gdsl is notmaintained and the both URLs source and home-page are now unreachable.Currently, substitutes are available on <> but nothing preventsan unfortunate "guix gc". This patch uses Software Heritage as an archive forupstream source, but since tarballs are not yet fully supported by SWH, thesupport 'git-fetch' is used instead.
Last, let check the integrity of the switch.
