@cindex reproducibility
@cindex replicating Guix
Often you may want to answer questions like: ``Which revision of Guix am I
using?'' or ``Which channels am I using?'' This is useful information in many
situations: if you want to @emph{replicate} an environment on a different
machine or user account, if you want to report a bug or to determine what
change in the channels you are using caused it, or if you want to record your
system state for reproducibility purposes. The @command{guix describe}
command answers these questions.
When run from a @command{guix pull}ed @command{guix}, @command{guix describe}
displays the channel(s) that it was built from, including their repository URL
and commit IDs (@pxref{Channels}):
@example
$ guix describe
Generation 10 Sep 03 2018 17:32:44 (current)
guix e0fa68c
repository URL: https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/guix.git
branch: master
commit: e0fa68c7718fffd33d81af415279d6ddb518f727
@end example
If you're familiar with the Git version control system, this is similar in
spirit to @command{git describe}; the output is also similar to that of
@command{guix pull --list-generations}, but limited to the current generation
(@pxref{Invoking guix pull, the @option{--list-generations} option}). Because
the Git commit ID shown above unambiguously refers to a snapshot of Guix, this
information is all it takes to describe the revision of Guix you're using, and
also to replicate it.
To make it easier to replicate Guix, @command{guix describe} can also be asked
to return a list of channels instead of the human-readable description above:
@example
$ guix describe -f channels
(list (channel
(name 'guix)
(url "https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/guix.git")
(commit
"e0fa68c7718fffd33d81af415279d6ddb518f727")))
@end example
@noindent
You can save this to a file and feed it to @command{guix pull -C} on some
other machine or at a later point in time, which will instantiate @emph{this
exact Guix revision} (@pxref{Invoking guix pull, the @option{-C} option}).
From there on, since you're able to deploy the same revision of Guix, you can
just as well @emph{replicate a complete software environment}. We humbly
think that this is @emph{awesome}, and we hope you'll like it too!
The details of the options supported by @command{guix describe} are as
follows:
@table @code
@item --format=@var{format}
@itemx -f @var{format}
Produce output in the specified @var{format}, one of:
@table @code
@item human
produce human-readable output;
@item channels
produce a list of channel specifications that can be passed to @command{guix
pull -C} or installed as @file{~/.config/guix/channels.scm} (@pxref{Invoking
guix pull}).
