I feel the need to automate producing these patches because there are a lot
of things my poor memory needs to remember. I'll make some commit scripts
and share them later. Or maybe I can write a local git hook to do all those
things for me.

I tried to figure this out, but it has been so long since a python package
has been added, and we anticipate python2 EOL, so I thought I would keep
them separate in case it wasn't worth adding the python2 versions as their
own patches. I'll fix this.

Yes, this is correct. As I understand it, names and email addresses are
added to the copyright section to allow someone to initiate contact with
each of the copyright holders regarding their copyright. The address looks
odd (and doesn't match some of the more common regexps for email addresses)
because it takes advantage of a feature that gives me (theoretically)
infinite email addresses that go to the same inbox. I use it to filter my
email, so I will know (in this case) an email is about a contribution I made
to guix, and my email client can filter it accordingly. I add the same email
address by my name in the copyright region when I send a major patch to
guix, and would rather not change it for this reason.

Ok. So do I understand correctly patch 1 should have a single white space
after the package, but not patch 2?

I forgot to change the synopsis and descriptions. I'll make sure I do that
before I send the fixed patches.

Ok. I will make sure that happens.

In response to this email, or simply to address@hidden? I'm guessing
either will work, but you are more likely to see a response to this email.

Not to worry. I had (and still have) other work to do, and this was a low-
priority task. I might not be able to send the fixed patches until possibly
the 18th or 19th. I'll send the corrected patches, and possibly contribute
other pending package definitions and/or bug reports as well.
