- We currently have a vm running Trisquel that host the Replicant
  source code[1].
- We also have part of our infrasructure which is hosted at OSUOSL,
  which contains Redmine, the ftp, etc[1].

I'd like to migrate it all under GuiX if possible in vms that are
hosted at the FSF.

Currently GuiX probably still lacks Gradle, and as it would require
quite some work to package, it's a priority for the project right now,
however it would be really nice to be able to build it under GuiX one
day as GuiX support reproducible builds.

This also applies to the package we need for our infrastructure, like
Redmine. Here I'm hoping that we can either package them when we will
be ready to migrate to GuiX or that packages will be available when we
do that.

Right now the idea is to get a new vm at the FSF to experiment with it,
and start migrating the easy parts to GuiX.

Here I've an scm file for a basic system that boots, but I would need
to get a vm that has a public IP address to continue working on that
and configuring the various services (http server, rsync server, etc).

At home I've a public static IPv6 range but I didn't manage to route it
to my internal network yet.

I'll do that, thanks a lot for the help.
