The idea is to add to guix a way to inform the user that the package

The idea is that when we refuse a package to be included we add it
with a short reason to this list.

Something like this
(package odoo
(reason "trapping users by withholding update scripts, see"
(alternatives '(dolibarr tryton smbledger ledger hledger gnucash)))

I don’t think it’s a good idea to clutter Guix with packages that we
won’t add. There’s already a lot in Guix to provide free software
packages; I don’t think we should add “negative packages”.

That’s out of scope for Guix and could be handled by some other GNU
resource instead.


Ok. I understand.
