Hello Guix!
When someone’s working on a channel, it’s typical to have that channelalready in your ‘guix’ and to use ‘guix build -L /path/to/checkout PKG’to test a package from a working copy of the channel. Here’s what itlooks like:
Toggle snippet (52 lines)$ cat ~/.config/guix/past-channels.scm (cons (channel (name 'guix-past) (url "https://gitlab.inria.fr/guix-hpc/guix-past") (introduction (make-channel-introduction "0c119db2ea86a389769f4d2b9c6f5c41c027e336" (openpgp-fingerprint "3CE4 6455 8A84 FDC6 9DB4 0CFB 090B 1199 3D9A EBB5")))) %default-channels)$ guix pull -p /tmp/test -C ~/.config/guix/past-channels.scm
[...]

The problem as can be seen above is that all these Guile warnings areconfusing at best and useless: there’s nothing the user can do aboutthem.
