   Hello, I follow a cool project, PrivacyBrowser, by Soren Stoutner.

   I have been eagerly awaiting its inclusion in Guix, but for some reason
   it has stalled, and no response has been given to the developer. See
   chain here:

   https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=64408

   Can anything be done?

   Thanks,
   mlampstaff

I think you should follow Clément Lassieur's suggestions in the link above, but I recommend web-browsers.scm as a more appropriate place than qt.scm for adding PrivacyBrowser.

Sometimes the developers forget about patches, so it's good to notify Guix committers by IRC or emailing the appropriate package team listed in etc/teams.scm.

Indeed, web-browser.scm sounds perfect.

Exactly!

Thank you
