Hi,

I have a custom channel defining a package.  The source of this package
is mirrored.

In ’(guix download)’ module, the list of mirrors are provided by the
list ’%mirrors’.  So I would like to add mine, e.g.,

        (cons
         '(mine
           "https://fast-server.org/sources/"
           "hhtps://kikoo.io/path/to/something/")
         %mirrors)

and then in my package definition,

        (uri "mirror://mine/stuff.tar.gz")

Somehow, I would like to replace the list %mirrors by an extended one.

Well, I am stuck because I am puzzled by the Guile module system. :-)


How to customize the mirror list?

Cheers,
simon

The easiest solution is to avoid mirror:// and pass a list of regular
URLs:

  (origin
    (method url-fetch)
    (uri (list URL1 URL2 URL3))
    (base32 …))

See for example how ‘qtbase’ does it.

Now, if you really want to extend the set of things recognized, you
could write variant of ‘url-fetch’ that passes a different #:mirrors
argument to ‘built-in-download’.  Maybe ‘url-fetch’ could have a
#:mirrors parameter to simplify it.

But really, the URL list should do the job most of the time.

Neat!  This is nice for one or two packages.

Well, it looks like it is a manual implementation of the Guix mirror
mechanism.

Why is it not possible to extend ’%mirrors?  For instance, it is
possible to extend ’%load-path’.  Why not %mirrors?

What I described above is one way to extend it, just not via ‘set!’.

Just to be sure, one way is this extension mechanism,

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(define (qt-urls component version)
  "Return a list of URLs for VERSION of the Qt5 COMPONENT."
  ;; We can't use a mirror:// scheme because these URLs are not exact copies:
  ;; the layout differs between them.
  (list (string-append "https://download.qt.io/official_releases/qt/"
                       (version-major+minor version) "/" version
                       "/submodules/" component "-everywhere-opensource-src-"
                       version ".tar.xz")
        (string-append "https://download.qt.io/official_releases/qt/"
                       (version-major+minor version) "/" version
                       "/submodules/" component "-everywhere-src-"
                       version ".tar.xz")
        (string-append "https://download.qt.io/archive/qt/"
                       (version-major+minor version) "/" version
                       "/submodules/" component "-everywhere-opensource-src-"
                       version ".tar.xz")
        (let ((directory (string-append "qt5" (string-drop component 2))))
          (string-append "http://sources.buildroot.net/" directory "/"
                         component "-everywhere-opensource-src-" version ".tar.xz"))
        (string-append "https://distfiles.macports.org/qt5/"
                       component "-everywhere-opensource-src-" version ".tar.xz")))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

then,

    (uri (qt-urls name version))

Right?  Well, for what it is worth, it does not appear to me consistent
with the rest.  We could do the same for everything, and remove
"mirror://" after all. :-)

The other one way is to implement a variant of url-fetch method.  What
would be the interface?  Where the extended list of mirrors would be
provided?

simon

I was referring to #:mirrors etc. above.

The more I write, the closer I get to an actual implementation.  :-)
If ‘url-fetch’ takes a #:mirrors, that should allow us to extend the set
of mirrors quite conveniently, along the lines of:

  (define (my-url-fetch . args)
    (apply url-fetch (append args '(#:mirrors …))))

HTH!

Well, the ’url-fetch’ defined in (guix build download) already takes
#:mirrors, no?

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(define* (url-fetch url file
                    #:key
                    (timeout 10) (verify-certificate? #t)
                    (mirrors '()) (content-addressed-mirrors '())
                    (disarchive-mirrors '())
                    (hashes '())
                    print-build-trace?)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

So, I guess you are talking about ’url-fetch*’ from (guix download) and
exported as ’url-fetch’.  Right?  The one which put the bits in the
store. :-)

Does something like that would make sense?

This change would a world rebuild, right?

Last, note that ’download-to-store’ uses %mirrors so it seems
straightforward here to add ’#:key (mirrors %mirrors)’, I guess.
