Guix,
The list of operating systems in GNOME Boxes' ‘Create a Virtual Machine’ & ‘Operating System Download’ menus has the same potential problems that GNUtoo describes here[0].
Kind regards,

It seems that Parabola hides the download button altogether:
https://git.parabola.nu/abslibre.git/tree/libre/gnome-boxes/hide_download_button.patch
But it seems we can instead tweak ‘data/recommended-downloads.xml’:
Toggle snippet (21 lines)<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?><!-- These are OSes listed in the recommended section of the "Download an OS" page.
This list is powered by libosinfo, therefore the URLs are unique identifiers for each OS in osinfo-db.
Downstreams are encouraged to tweak the list as they wish. Sorting is also available. --><list> <os_id>http://redhat.com/rhel/8.2</os_id> <os_id>http://fedoraproject.org/fedora/32</os_id> <os_id>http://fedoraproject.org/silverblue/32</os_id> <os_id>http://ubuntu.com/ubuntu/20.04</os_id> <os_id>http://opensuse.org/opensuse/15.1</os_id> <os_id>http://debian.org/debian/10</os_id> <os_id>http://endlessos.com/eos/3.8</os_id></list>
In parallel, it’d be nice to submit a patch adding Guix to ‘osinfo-db’:
https://gitlab.com/libosinfo/osinfo-db/-/tree/master/data/os
Any takers? :-)
