I think the issue mentioned in the last message at [1] could be a good
start, though it may require some knowledge of Guix, mostly through its
G-Expressions!  You would have to extend the transformation to consider
the case where the source is not a directory.

I unfortunately don't think I can co-mentor the project, but I'll always
be happy to answer questions whenever I'm available :)
