Message-ID: <> (raw)


Trying old Python 3.6, I just checked the old commit with “git log” and
run the command:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
guix time-machine --commit=ce35dc84a1 \
    -- environment -C --ad-hoc python -- python --version
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

which after burning some CPU fails!

Well, it is expected because the commit is from March 2018 so before the
big overhaul and all.  But it is annoying to hit it, especially if there
is some verification / authentication when “Updating channel”.

Does it make to add an error if the commit is not reachable for “guix

All the best,
