@ -2350,6 +2350,20 @@ Download the source tarball of Guix from @var{url}.
By default, the tarball is taken from its canonical address at
@code{gnu.org}, for the stable branch of Guix.
With some Git servers, this can be used to deploy any version of Guix.
For example, to download and deploy version 0.12.0 of Guix from the
canonical Git repo:
@example
guix pull --url=http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/snapshot/v0.12.0.tar.gz
@end example
It can also be used to deploy arbitrary Git revisions:
@example
guix pull --url=http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/snapshot/74d862e8a.tar.gz
@end example
@item --bootstrap
Use the bootstrap Guile to build the latest Guix. This option is only
useful to Guix developers.
