Hello!

I sent a commit access application few days ago and it was approved! I
am really happy that is the case!

I've been working on PowerPC 64-bits support on and off on GNU Guix
since 2 years as I own a RaptorCS Talos II machine at home that runs
with only free firmware and software.

I also use GNU Guix as my daily driver system on my laptop since around
6 months.

I feel really happy finding out about GNU Guix in general, I love the
community and the fact that it is a GNU project, I really like that we
can solve fundamental computer problems with a software freedom
philosophy free of any contradictory interest.

I have a lot of time these days (choose to leave all jobs and focus on
what I like) so as my learning of GNU Guile, Scheme and GNU Guix
improves, expect me on all fronts!

Thank you!

Léo Le Bouter

Are you running Debian on the PowerPC?  I assume Debian's got the best
PowerPC support.  Do most programs compile ok/work ok for Debian?

Please do consider setting up a patreon/librepay account!  Marketing
helps too!

I run Fedora currently because that's where the support came first and
I think that's where it's best still since Red Hat markets a product
that supports the platform commercially as well. But today Debian is
fine too. The release model of Fedora made it easier to get incremental
improvement on PowerPC 64-bits platform support while still maintaining
a well tested and usable system, I didnt think I could obtain such with
Debian at install time, but maybe, on testing etc. channels.

For now it is fine, also I don't feel like that would work for now :-|
I am on my learning path still!

Yay, welcome on board!  :-)

It’s exciting to see your work coming to fruition!
