The (oddly named) procedure “guix-infect” in (gnu machine digital-ocean)
contains a Bash script that installs Guix 1.0.1 and sets the
GUILE_LOAD_PATH to that of Guile 2.2.

Likewise, “add-static-networking” in the same module sets
GUILE_LOAD_PATH to 2.2.

It seems to me that this should be updated to install the latest version
of Guix and set the load path to that of Guile 3.0.

I also wonder if there might not be a better way to deploy Guix quickly,
for example by using a relocatable pack of Guix and using “guix copy”
instead of executing a shell script.

I think that building a Guix System image and creating a droplet out of
it using the DigitalOcean API, as I described here[1] would be a better
solution.

Thanks,

Mathieu

Yes, this seems better than installing Guix on an existing system (which
costs time and possibly expensive bandwidth), and to replace the running
system with it.

FWIW, I wrote Guile AWS[1], which may be useful for doing the same with
AWS as a backend.
