Hi there! I am new to software development, but I would like to contribute. I want to start by updating some rust packages to newer versions.<br>

So far I have just been making scheme files in a seperate directory and running "guix build -f $SCHEME_FILE". I am trying to follow the [guidlines in the manual](https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Contributing.html), but git is still new to me and I am a little confused how to make this all work.

What should I do to get package builds to recognize the updates I make to dependencies?

Have a look at:
<https://guix.gnu.org/cookbook/en/html_node/Packaging-Tutorial.html>
that has an in-depth take on packaging.  Once you
have a patch that you are ready to submit, follow
this:
<https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Submitting-Patches.html>.

I'd just like to add that if at any point you'd like some help, there
are always people willing to provide some on IRC, or on the MLs.  No
stupid questions, just ask away!

Good luck,
