> Guile is not racket, it's round brackets everywhere.
Guile doesn't allow square brackets, like Racket does? I don't think I've ever found that to be the case. I know at least some of the RnRS standards don't allow it but I didn't think Guile was a strict adherent. Not that I'm pushing back since, clearly, it falls outside the style guide for Guix but it's the first I've heard that Guile requires parentheses everywhere.

I was using the description provided by the author on their GitHub site; should I come up with my own description, in my own words, instead? The synopsis already pretty much covers what it is (a calendar applet so a calendar pops up when activated; a GTK simple calendar) so I figured that, combined, they gave a good snapshot of what it is and what it's aiming for.
But I can definitely alter it to something else if that isn't sufficient; just double checking so let me know and I shall do that.

Sure thing! I've attached what I have, so far, for the updated patch, below, and I'll update it again if the description needs tweaking.
