Thank you. Sorry for the delay. Some comments follow.

Where does this "0.1" come from? According to "soothe-theme.el" and
Changelog, version is 20141027.2233.

Also, I suggest to stick to commit hash
0568a61eeec0b074d8911886359a6c5da13d14cb, which is the penultimate
commit, but matches version bump. You don't need to use `git-version'

You can drop the ".git" suffix from the URL.

Synopsis must not start with an article. I would also remove reference
to Emacs 24, which is unimportant in Guix.

Description must contain complete sentence only. So it should be "Soothe
theme is an amalgam…".

Also (nitpick) major mode are usually capitalized and un-hyphenized at
least in the Emacs manual. So: Rainbom delimiters, Org mode, Whitespace
mode, Flyspell, Ido, Linum…

Since the project hasn't seen any commit in the last 7 years, maybe
"further mode support to come" should be removed.

License seems to be gpl3, not gpl3+.

Could you send an updated patch?
