Project: Guix Data Service revision processing instrumentation and performance

The Guix Data Service processes and stores information from Guix. Currently the process can be slow though, and it's not that easy to work out where the areas for improvement might be.

Therefore, it would be good to add additional instrumentation to the process, making it easy to find out which bits are especially slow. Once that's known, hopefully those slow bits can be sped up.

We value contributions in advance of Outreachy, even if they're just little ones. During the application period we expect interaction with us, so do not leave it to the last minute.
