In general Guix is a rolling release distribution. Thus IMHO tryton
should be updated.
Anyhow I understand that we need a LTS variant for GNU Health and other
conservative users. We could create a „tryton-lts.scm“ which holds the
LTS versions, inherited from the current release. Creating such a file
is expected be to not much of a problem.
