Hello Guix,

Starting on version 0.4.3.5, Tor provides a configuration flag to
disable relay code (--disable-module-relay). Considering most
people are running clients, not relays, I thought it would be
nice for guix to have a client-only package definition (maybe
it could even be the default?). What do you think?

I've tested the code below and it works as expected on my guix
install. However, since I'm neither a schemer nor guixpert, fell
free to teach me how to do it the guix way.

What difference does it make, for instance in terms of the total size
returned by “guix size tor-client” vs. “guix size tor”?

Are there other considerations, such as a reduced attack surface?

It looks good to me overall!  Some nitpicking:

We’d rather use ‘substitute-keyword-arguments’ to augment
#:configure-flags without touching the other keyword arguments (there
are several examples in the source).

We generally avoid concatenating text like this, for the reasons
explained at:

  https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Synopses-and-Descriptions.html

Regarding the format of patches, you can take a look at this:

Thanks,

Hi Ludo,

dom 24 mai 2020 às 22:51:16 (1590371476), ludo@gnu.org enviou:
> Hi Andre,

Considering only the total size, the difference doesn't appear to be
significant: 90.6 MiB vs 91.0 MiB. However, since most of it is relared
to gcc and glibc, I also thought it would be more accurate to compare
the difference between the binaries. Comparing those, there is a 8.5%
reduction on it's size - from 4120K to 3768K on my i686 machine[1].
On x86_64, it goes from 97.0MiB to 96.7MiB total size or 3840K to
3532K, which equals a reduction of 8.0% on the bin[2].

I did not try to emulate other architectures, but I can do it, if you
think the idea is worth.

> Are there other considerations, such as a reduced attack surface?

Other considerations were: not loading code which is not meant to be
used into memory, reducing the compilation and check time as well as
avoiding running relays by mistake (miunderstanding on ORPort or
copy+pasting old configs or config files found on the web).

AFAIUI, this could also mean a reduced attack surface, but I couldn't
think of a way of exploiting the relay module without relying on a
prior exploit. Maybe if the user is running a onion service or
through the SocksPort. I dont know.

> It looks good to me overall!  Some nitpicking:

I see you've been kind to me. Thank you.

> We’d rather use ‘substitute-keyword-arguments’ to augment

I've overlooked the warning on section 14.5.3 of guix manual
regarding Lispers tendency to overuse car, cdr cadr and co.

> We generally avoid concatenating text like this, for the reasons

And I've also overlooked this section.

> Regarding the format of patches, you can take a look at this:
>

This I had read, but I thought I could skip some of it since it was
not a new package, just a new flag through inheritance. But I
suppose I was just passing the burden onto others.

I'll send a new patch taking your warnings into account.

I'm a little bit short on time, so I couldn't do everything I was supposed
to. I'm sending the attached patch for your consideration, just in case
someone wants to try it out, though I still need to clone the git repo, try
to build it on a pre-inst-env, and try to compile on archs other than i686
and x86_64.

I've run './etc/indent-code.el', guix lint and there where no errors.

It might take me some time to properly set up everything here and complete
the remaining steps, so please do tell me if you think the reasoning on the
previous email does not hold up or is not worth the trouble.

This diff was taken upon commit 018cffc9c9e5a5855733f5f45a1c4d396bb6a321.

There was a missing space on the previous email. 'indent-code.el' did
not keep exactly the same indenting as other definitions so I did
insert spaces by hand but forgot one, so I'm resending.

Also, I've forgot to mention that the build seems to be deterministic.

I need to stop thinking of cars and cdrs. It didn't even try to compile
again, just gave me the address on the store, so I'm guessing guile is
smart enough to see it's equivalent and does not care at all.

I'll be less clumsy next time around.

Applied, but without those evil tabs that ‘guix lint’ reported.  ;-)

The closure as reported by ‘guix size’ is 96.7 MiB for ‘tor-client’
vs. 97.0 MiB for ‘tor’.  So it’s not compelling from that point of view,
but having less “dead” code when you only use the client is a probably
good idea.

Thanks!

Ludo’.

That's embarrassing. I could swear I had removed those before sending.

I'm glad to have helped and hope to be able to contribute more.
Tonight it's celebration time for me, I'll be drinking to the memory
of those who came before and made it possible for me to be here now.

:D

Sure thing. I've only sent it here because I was unsure if it was
worth it.

Thank you for all your work on guix!
