Hello Guix,

In the manual section 4.8, "Invoking οΏ½guix time-machineοΏ½", I believe that
"are passed unmodified to the οΏ½guixοΏ½ command if the specified revision,"
would read better if it said, "to the οΏ½guixοΏ½ command of the specified
revision."

I've filed this as a bug like #39417 as an easy task for Outreachy
applicants. Let me know if a patch would be preferred.

Best,
Jack
