civodul pushed a commit to branch master
in repository guix.

commit 7cfd789150f448cf5256b88915bae4163cc9db03
Author: Ludovic Courtès <>
AuthorDate: Thu Jan 28 22:48:21 2021 +0100

    inferior: Speed up 'cached-channel-instance' for cache hits.
    That way a command like:
      guix time-machine --commit=5aeee07cc9 -- describe
    goes from 3.4s to 0.5s on a cache hit, even slightly less when passing
    the full commit ID.
    * guix/inferior.scm (channel-full-commit): New procedure.
    (cached-channel-instance): Remove 'instances' top-level variable.  Add
    'commits' and use it for 'key'.  Move 'latest-channel-instances' call to
    the cache miss case.
