Yes, this is correct.  A manifest declares the contents of a single
profile.  By passing a manifest file to “guix package -m” you tell it to
only install the declared packages and remove everything else.

You can instantiate different manifest to different profiles by also
passing “-p /path/to/other/profile”.  You can combine them in a session
by source-ing each of the profiles’ “etc/profile” files.

It’s better to send separate emails.
