Yes, thanks! :-)

I think it is an easy fix but one could raise it violates FSDG.  I do
not want to open the case because from my understanding, display this
info by "guix show" is *strictly* equivalent to have an option
returning true upstream, instead of Guix modified one; discussed at
length. :-)

Yep.  The meaning of that ???? was: please, do not forget to complete
before include that to your paper. :-)

The date of publication.  Guix do not capture this information either.

I agree.

Me neither.

Yes.  It is my main motivation for such feature.

 a) Have something almost compliant with software-bibtex, which
requires swh:1:...
 b) Extract also an entry providing somehow "guix describe" as software-bibtex

The point a) is the key point, IMHO.  Otherwise, a trivial template
(or any half-baked manual converter fits the bill; I previously did
that in another life. :-))

Well, that's why, I agree with Ludo and this feature should be
external to Guix.  For instance, an extension available with "guix
install", as GWL.

Yeah for sure.  I would prefer to have an extension, say
"guix-publishing", available as a regular package, then "guix
publishing <options>" would allow to export, check SWH, and other
stuff I often do when preparing a publication.

Well, I just wanted to point what I have in mind, for the interested
reader not knowing bibtex-software.
