I am following this article to manage my Digital Ocean servers using
'guix deploy':
https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2019/managing-servers-with-gnu-guix-a-tutorial/

However, I notice that the Digital Ocean deployment actually installs
Guix version 1.0.1 (May 2019) instead of the latest version — 1.2.0
(November 2020).

I looked into the source code and found that gnu/machine/digital-ocean.scm
is outdated:
https://github.com/guix-mirror/guix/blob/v1.2.0/gnu/machine/digital-ocean.scm#L198

Is it safe to deploy an old version of Guix, considering the massive
improvements that have taken place over 18 months between May 2019 and
November 2020?

Heh, there's a lot of infection happening this evening (see the other
thread from ilmu)
And now I see where his script variant may be coming from, will the
infection rate be
higher ?

OK now, COVID-related jokes asides, you're right this is outdated.

You could try with just updating the URLs to guix binary tarballs and
tell us if this
still works, or even contribute by sending a patch fixing it.

This should be straightforward.

I tried to reply to that thread, but it appears that my mail did not
reach the mailing list. I am not subscribed to the mailing list, It
appears that I can start new threads without subscribing, but I cannot
reply?!

Okay, now my emails are appearing in the archive, but only after I
subscribe to the mailing list. Is that the expected behavior?

From my understanding:
* Anyone can start a new thread by sending an email to help-guix@gnu.org,
  even if they are not subscribed to the mailing list.
* Only subscribers to the mailing list can make replies to threads.

Is that the correct description? Where is this documented?

I don't know exactly what is happening for you but, in general, new
email addresses are subject to human moderation on these mailing lists.

Any moderation delays should be cleared up pretty soon.

The moderation of new people on the mailing lists is undocumented and
ad-hoc.

Does this mean that it is possible to participate (i.e. start new
threads and reply to posts) without subscribing to the list?
If so, that would be great because I don't want to receive an email for
every post or receive daily digests; I only want to browse through the
mailing list archives once a month, and occasionally reply to some
threads.

Correct, there is no requirement to subscribe. After the first or second
message, new people are no longer subject to moderation. You will only
receive replies to threads that involve you.

I found an existing bug report about this problem:
