Hi Sarah,

Friendly reminder about this patch set:

To me, it’s pretty much ready now that we can use
‘package-definition-location’ so that ‘guix refresh -u’ edits the right

If you’re not able to work on it these days, I can tweak it for
‘package-definition-location’ use and push it on your behalf.
Let me know!
