Hello Myles,

The patch LGTM overall.  Here are some comments/questions:

> +(define-public solvespace-3
> +  (let ((commit "5df53fc59e7f31e265fabd4c15e6601bd3032833")
> +     (revision "1"))
> +    (package
> +      (name "solvespace")
> +      (version (git-version "3.0" revision commit))

Why choose this commit specifically?  ‘git describe’ returns
“v2.1.rc1-570-g5df53fc”, and in fact there’s no “v3.0” tag, so this
version string is a bit misleading.

The general policy is to use the latest release, but if there’s a
compelling argument, we can use another commit; in that case, it’s
better to have a comment explaining the choice.

Is ‘recursive?’ needed?  If it’s just for the bundled dependencies under
extlib/ that are not used anyway, perhaps we can omit it?

Could you make it a full sentence and perhaps expound a little bit, as
per <>?

Thank you, and apologies for the delay!
