About this wiki

This official wiki is used by the Guix project to gather user feedback, such as the wishlist, and help organise events such as the Guix Days.

However, for documentation and examples, we believe that the Guix manual and cookbook are better suited than a wiki.

Help improve our documentation

Your contributions to the Guix documentation are very welcome!

If you are comfortable using Git, you can submit your changes as patches.

Otherwise, send your concrete suggestions to and we'll help get your changes upstream!
