Update of task #15286 (project reproduce):

                 Summary: Using GNU Guix as template's package manger =>
Template's package manger


Follow-up Comment #1:

I recently learned about GNU Stow <> which
can be one way to implement a Nix/Guix-like feature within our existing
software building process.

GNU Staw has a very interesting suggestion: Assume you have a "store"
directory. Build every software (with its unique configuration) in a unique
top-level installation directory (for example
`store/b6gvzjyb2pg0kjfwrjmg1vfhh54ad73z-firefox-33.1/'). This installation
directory will then have all the basic directories like `bin', `lib', `man'
and etc. But only filled with the installed files of that particular software.

Afterwards the job of GNU Staw will be to fill each project's
`.build/software/installed' directory with symbolic links to the necessary
software for each project from `store'.

Of course, this is not as comprehensive a solution as Nix, or GNU Guix, but if
we can't find a solution for the problems mentioned before, it may be one step
in the right direction, until we can finally adapt them.
