>> Subject: [PATCH] gnu: system: Symlink guix inside an initial guix pull
>> This patch adds an initial guix pull profile to the skeletons files used
>> on Guix System. This ensures that users don't have to type 'hash guix'
>> after their first guix pull, and prevents 'guix pull' from suggesting to
>> run 'guix pull' after it finished successfuly.
> It prevents the suggestion, but only because the symlink appears to be
> new. If you change the mtime of the symlink, or if you run:
> GUIX_DISTRO_AGE_WARNING=1s guix pull
> I think you still get the “guix pull” recommendation.
>> * gnu/system/shadow.scm (skeleton-directory): Symlink guix inside an
>> initial guix pull profile.
> Perhaps we should add it to ‘default-skeletons’ instead of
> special-casing it here? WDYT?
> Thanks for working on it!
