Hi Guix!

Attached is a patch that updates the ROADMAP according to the
discussions that happened during the Guix Days! We tried to keep the
items actionnable, so there are more thoughts that we haven't
transcribed to the roadmap. I'll send all these items we discussed
during the last session a bit later, and we should turn them into a
blog post!

Thanks for taking care of that! Really sad I couldn’t be there in
person, but I’ll sure watch the recording if/when it becomes available.

DONE or mostly, no? :-)

We might need to further discuss some of the items, but overall I think
it’s a great a long overdue update.

Thanks!

Finger cross that all had been going fine. :-)

No, OCaml 4.07 is only bootstrapped using camlboot (Guile). The new
version OCaml 4.11 or 4.13 are not. Two paths: 1. chain the recent
versions starting from 4.07 or 2. improve caml-boot.

I have lost (a way to say that I am too lazy to look for) the list we
did at the last Hackathon abouth Guix-HPC. Maybe some items could
land there. Who knows? ;-)

Thanks for updating the list. I've committed it to the maintenance
repo, but some thoughts for the future:

1. Is a TODO in the maintenance repo the right location to track
Guix-specific enhancements? Since this kind of list is bound to differ
for each of us (based on our personal interests), I've been keeping this
kind of list for myself in my ~/org/guix.org file. Perhaps having a
"enhancements" page on the LibrePlanet wiki along the page for packaging
requests could be used?

2. How do we decide which item makes it to the list? Discussing roadmap
items on guix-devel would reach the largest audience I think.

Anyway, food for thought :-).

Thanks for the refreshed list.

Maxim
