Hi everyone,
I am Aniket Patil, an aspiring Outreachy Intern. I am interested in a
project called "
Add a subcommand showing GNU Guix history of all packages". I am
looking forward to working with guix team and mentors.

Hey!

Welcome!
And thank you for your interest in Guix.


Have you currently running Guix?

If no, the easiest is to start with the package manager [1] using the
shell script installer (first Red note in [1] :-)).  The package manager
works on any GNU/linux distribution and is not in conflict with the
distro package manager.  Do not hesitate to ask on help-guix@gnu.org or
#guix if you hit any problem, the Guix folks are prompt for
answering. :-) Once you can run "guix <command>" [2], you can read how
to define a package [3].  BTW, give a look to the Perfect Setup [4] and
here [5] my config files if you need inspiration. ;-)

Well, if you have already used --- or currently using --- you can try
"guix import" or "guix refresh"; i.e., write your first package
contribution.  Therefore, you need to read [6].  Again, do not hesitate
to ask on help-guix@gnu.org or #guix if you hit any problem.

To be concrete, I suggest to read [3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12] and try to
package something.  Easy and good candidates for first packages are CRAN
or BioConductor packages:

   guix import cran <pkg>
   guix import cran -a bioconductor <pkg>

You can pick unpackaged one from the list [12].  Do not hesitate to ask
if you do not find an obvious one –– it should a good occasion to show
you “guix repl”. :-)
