How well does archive source for packages? How does that evolve over time?

Timothy Sample publishes the first “Preservation of Guix Report”:

For recent commits, 73% of the package source code is definitely archived! 👍🏼

@civodul where do all those "unknown" come from? how can package archival be in an unknown state?

@ruffni The “unknown” state is typically for non-gzipped tarballs. Disarchive doesn’t work (yet) for those, so we can’t map the tarball hash to the content hash (as used by SWH), hence the unknown state.

@civodul @ruffni How do you distinguish between missing and unknown?

If things actually download and build, why would they be missing?
