Hi Maya!

So... You cannot change group ownership in the store.  There are no additional user groups in the build environment.  The chgrp failing is by design ('it's a feature, not a bug'), and there's no way to subvert this.  The group is not required during the build process.

The correct way to make smtpctl setgid is to use Guix System's setuid-programs field, and use (setgid? #t) (group "smtpq") for smtpctl.

Kind regards,


Sent on the go.  Excuse or enjoy my brevity.
