Interesting developments in Guile/Guix land:

"Mes aims to create full source bootstrapping for GuixSD: an entirely source-based bootstrap path. The target is to [have GuixSD] boostrap from a minimal, easily inspectable binary --that should be readable as source-- into something close to R6RS Scheme."

Mes is super exciting stuff. We may get the whole operating system fully bootstrapped and reproducible, which would be pretty thrilling!

Awesome stuff.

Side note: "mes" is "wimp" in Swedish. Or "tit" (the bird genus".
