GNU Mes

Reduced Binary Seed bootstrap for GuixSD


Two years ago on FOSDEM'17 a minimalistic bootstrap was a dream; today it has become a reality. Bootstrapping GNU/Linux without use of the GNU toolchain (gcc, binutils, glibc) was our first milestone that we just reached. Mes became a GNU project. We'll talk about how Mes' minimalistic Scheme has made this possible and on future milestones (Scheme only bootstrap, other GNU/Linux distributions) before reaching the holy grail: a full source bootstrap.
