The manual does document the new options, but the copy of the manual on
our webpage corresponds to the 0.13.0 release of Guix, so it doesn't
include the changes.

For any user that has the guix package installed (on a foreign distro,
that's root), you should be able to access the corresponding copy of the
manual with `info guix`.

I've copied the new documentation below:

The guix pull command is usually invoked with no arguments, but it supports the 
following options:


    Produce verbose output, writing build logs to the standard error output.

    Download Guix from the Git repository at url.

    By default, the source is taken from its canonical Git repository at, for the stable branch of Guix.

    Deploy commit, a valid Git commit ID represented as a hexadecimal string.

    Deploy the tip of branch, the name of a Git branch available on the 
repository at url.

    Use the bootstrap Guile to build the latest Guix. This option is only 
useful to Guix developers. 

So, you can adjust your command like this:

$ guix pull --url=

That is, use the URL you'd use for `git clone`.
