Dear,

Toggle snippet (11 lines)
$ guix import cran -a bioconductor CATALYST

Starting download of /tmp/guix-file.OPtOW1
From https://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/src/contrib/CATALYST_1.12.2.tar.gz...
…12.2.tar.gz 10.2MiB 567KiB/s 00:18 [##################] 100.0%

Starting download of /tmp/guix-file.V6sC1Z
From https://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/src/contrib/CATALYST_1.12.2.tar.gz...
…12.2.tar.gz 10.2MiB 565KiB/s 00:19 [##################] 100.0%

I have not investigated more, if the issue is from the importer or from
the information provided by Bioconductor.


All the best,
simon

It comes from ’cran->guix-package’ in (guix import cran):

Toggle snippet (5 lines)
(let ((description (fetch-description repo package-name)))
(if description
(description->package repo description)

where ’fetch-description’ effectively downloads but then
’description->package’ downloads again:

Toggle snippet (6 lines)
(source (download source-url #:method (cond
(git? 'git)
(hg? 'hg)
(else #f))))

This second download is not necessary. The fix needs some care with the
different repositories.


Cheers,
simon
