Hi Julien:

Thanks for your tips.

But is the GuixSD going to pull in changes from the git — do they get 
propagated soon? I thought the system is more “stable” in terms of not using 
the latest git pushed changes.

I'd like to do this, but don't know how to go about in — could you help me with 
a simple example?

I've read the “Guix profiles in practice”¹ webpage, but don't understand how to 
simply implement them like this?

I know how to declare a system and install GuixSD. So let's say, I'll have a 
minimal system. Now I'd like to have StumpWM as the WM and then let's say 
Emacs, MC, and LibreOffice as user apps.

Should I have two profiles — one for the home manager with StumpWM and one for 
shiroikuma (myself, the user) with mc, emacs, and libreoffice in it?

What should they be — I'm not experienced enough to write them. Where do I call 
/ declare them, how do I then update?

Sorry for going so in depth — but if you could post the full profile text for 
this simple case and give me guidance on how to use it, I'd be much obliged.

Many thanks! :@)
