If I download the latest installer and use it to install a new system,
the "guix system init" command will install the guix package defined in
the (gnu packages package-management) module.
That means that if the installer is built with a guix package at the
version N in that module, the guix installed by the installer will be at
Besides the fact it is quite disturbing there are at least two major

recently added a comment about that:

;; If you are updating this package because it fails to build, you need to

* When the guix package is updated twice in two separate but near
commits, Cuirass that is checkouting Guix every 5 minutes might miss
the intermediate version of the guix package. Hence, the installation
is taking a while because the guix package is expensive to build.
Any idea on how to improve this inception problem?
