It took me about 15 minutes to install GCC on Guix because Guix named
the GCC package libgccjit.
I understand Guix package manager is powerful. I think you should use
an alias feature (or whatever it is called under Guix), and create and
few aliases to help with administration:
gcc -> libgccjit
g++ -> libgccjit
gcc-c++ -> libgccjit
These are the names developers expect for the compiler. They don't
expect a name like libgccjit.
With the aliases in place, a command like 'guix install gcc' works as expected.
Without the aliases (and absent a sane package name), people have to
lookup the documentation and read how to use the package manager for a
simple task like installing the compiler. When 50 or 100 developers
waste 15 minutes of their time, that's about 1 man-week wasted.
There's no reason to waste man-weeks on simple tasks.
Thanks in advance.
