I'm not aware of this - I just picked all default settings, not that
the choice was big.

That's my first day running Fedora, but if someone gives me right
directions, I can help.

Even manual testing before making a release would be good. Btw
adding checkboxes to the issue tracker would make it easier for
everyone. Anyway, Guix should work on disributions considered to be
"industry standard" such as Debian, Fedora, etc. What about a list of
distributions Guix was tested on in the manual, with a link to it
somewhere on the main page.

The first impression is really important.
