7 Canais

Guix and its package collection are updated by running guix pull (see Invocando guix pull). By default guix pull downloads and deploys Guix itself from the official GNU Guix repository. This can be customized by defining channels in the ~/.config/guix/channels.scm file. A channel specifies a URL and branch of a Git repository to be deployed, and guix pull can be instructed to pull from one or more channels. In other words, channels can be used to customize and to extend Guix, as we will see below. Guix is able to take into account security concerns and deal with authenticated updates.
