“sudo guix system reconfigure ” triggers re-clone/update of Git checkout
(address . firstname.lastname@example.org)
Hi! If you do, as a regular user: guix pull sudo guix system reconfigure … the ‘guix system reconfigure’, as part of the downgrade-detectionmachinery, triggers an update of the channel checkout(s) in~root/.cache, even though ~USER/.cache is already up-to-date. One way to avoid it might be to special-case the checkout cachedirectory for when ‘SUDO_USER’ is set. Thoughts? Ludo’.

Attached is a prototype that first clones/fetches from ~USER/.cache into~root/.cache, in the hope that this avoids the need to access theupstream repo. (It requires ‘set-remote-url!’, which is only inGuile-Git ‘master’.) It’s a bit hacky but I can’t think of a better way to address thisissue. In particular, having root use ~USER/.cache directly is not anoption: it could end up creating root-owned files there. Thoughts? Ludo’.
