Hello— To synchronise file with a server I don't operate, I would like to use email@example.com on my Guix System, preferably the GUI*. The last e-mail I could find about this on the mailinglists looks relevant.

Did you find a solution for synchronising between Guix and the other system? I vaguely remember that at some time there were several Unison versions available on Guix. Of course, I might try to build Unison 2.51.2 on the non-Guix system. —Marco * Works nice to put unison-gtk in .xinitrc, before and after running your window manager.
