Alpine Linux packages of GNU Guix.
## What is it
alguix is an alpine linux package repository, providing packages related to
guix package manager, hosted at https://mirror.dhruvin.dev/alpine/alguix
## Why did I make it
I contribute to both guix and alpine. I was looking for a way to bring guix
closer to alpine. I initially [tried to port
alpine (`<arch>-unknown-linux-musl`). But I failed, sort of. guix compiles
nicely, but errors out a lot at runtime, since the target is not supported by
What now? guix is self-contained. It should be easier to just *plop* it on any
linux distro. So I just did that. For now, alguix, the repository, contains
`guix-binary` package that has all necessary runtime dependencies of guix to be
able to run on alpine linux. Including, well I'm just gonna say it, glibc.
I can now peacefully develop packages for guix on alpine. What an abomination!
### Why did I really make it
Because I just wanted to experiment with hosting my own alpine package
repository. How did it go? Pretty well.
