I have always appreciated Arun's design choices.

His inputs regarding Skribilo and Xapian mark him down as a man of exquisite taste.

I just want to share with you a temporary solution for users who wish to
try out tissue or other packages before they are included in Guix

...and yes, unlike me advanced Guix users may find this obvious :-)

Put this file

in your preferred directory (~/guix/unpackaged/ in the example below)
and then:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

guix shell -f ~/guix/unpackaged/tissue.scm -- tissue help

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The first time the package(s) gets compiled, so it'll take as time as
needed, from the second time onwards the guix shell cache will do its
job and the command will run immediatly.

With this trick you can use Guix to install tissue [1] and use it for
your project - or tissue issues [2] - before tissue is packaged in Guix.

«One Guix to rule them all» :-D

Happy hacking!
