Hi Guix,

I was looking through some old issue, and wondering if potluck is
still relevant now that we have channels.

Reading through the initial email[0] by Andy the potlock feature seems
to be way more extensive than channels: it allows one to create simple
packages in an interactive manner and centralize the discoverability of
such packages. Channels provide us a way to create package outise of
Guix proper but finding channels containing the package you are looking
for is still an unsolved problem.

He even write the following:
So, remaining tasks to do:
(3) Someone needs to design and implement a "guix channel" facility to
    take advantage of this branch :)  Until then, GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH
    and the -L argument are the things to use.

Shall we close this issue?

Having an answer form Andy or Ludovic on this front you be great.
