nckx pushed a commit to branch master
in repository guix.

commit 7c52cad0464175370c44bd4695e4c01a62b8268f
Author: Tobias Geerinckx-Rice <>
AuthorDate: Sun Jun 5 02:00:05 2022 +0200

    pull: Fail if cache directory ownership is suspect.
    New users frequently run ‘sudo guix pull’ which breaks subsequent
    unprivileged ‘guix pull’s until manually fixed with chmod -R.
    * guix/scripts/pull.scm (guix-pull): Fail if the cache directory (or
    its innermost extant parent) is not owned by the user pulling the Guix,
    with a hint about ‘sudo -i’.
