I changed the source to fetch from Git. This type of tarball, which isnamed "Source code (tar.gz)" on the web site, is generated automaticallyby GitHub. These auto-generated tarballs actually change over time, asGitHub updates their software. So, we fetch from Git in this case, toensure that package source will always be bit-identical.
Toggle quote (2 lines)> + (synopsis "A tiny IRC client written in POSIX C99")
`guix lint kirc` complained that the synopsis starts with an "article",that is, with "A [...]". So I removed it.

And I removed what I consider "marketing language" from the synopsis anddescription, and suggested in our manual's Synopses and Descriptionssection: https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Synopses-and-Descriptions.html#Synopses-and-Descriptions For example, the word "tiny" is subjective, and I think all programsdesigned to be "usable" :) Finally, I made sure to import the module (guix utils) in (gnu packagesirc). Otherwise, the package fails to build, like this: ------ice-9/eval.scm:142:16: In procedure compile-top-call:error: cc-for-target: unbound variablehint: Did you forget `(use-modules (guix utils))'?------ We request that you lint your packages and try building them beforesubmitting your patches. If you don't know how to do that, that's okay!Just say so in the patch submission, and we will be happy to help.
