[bug#37413] [PATCH v2 00/11] Channel news distribution mechanism

Here’s an updated version that addresses some of the issues that
were raised and some of those that weren’t even raised.

Changes compared to v1:

  • If the news format version is incompatible, silently ignore it
    instead of raising an error.

  • Language tags in the news file are now symbols instead of
    strings.  Thus, xgettext can readily be used:

       xgettext -ken -l scheme etc/news.scm

  • News entries can refer to a tag instead of a commit, as suggested
    by Ricardo.

  • ‘guix pull’ shows news titles when there are news.  (In v1 you’d
    have to explicitly run ‘guix pull --news’ to see if there are


I’ll go with that if there are no objections.


Ludovic Courtès (11):
  pull: '--news' shows the list of channels added or removed.
  git: 'update-cached-checkout' avoids network access when unnecessary.
  git: Add 'commit-difference'.
  channels: Add support for a news file.
  channels: Allow news entries to refer to a tag.
  ui: Add 'current-message-language'.
  pull: Display channel news.
  pull: '-l' displays channel news.
  pull: Display news titles directly upon 'pull'.
  Add '.guix-channel' file.
  DRAFT etc: Add channel news file.
