Guix,

I'm finally trying out this fancy installer.

In the list of keyboard layouts, I scrolled down to ‘US’ but it didn't exist, because (for better or worse) the list we use is language-oriented. I now better understand how people have been confused in the past.

OK to apply this tweak?

Not for 1.0.1 IMO as this would invalidate translations.

Other than that, I don’t know if adding “language” helps, but maybe it
does?

Thanks,
Ludo’.
