Some (perhaps most) services assume that you are somewhat familiar with
the software in question.  For example, the explanation of the
openssh-configuration in the Guix manual explains what the configuration
items do, but if you don't know what OpenSSH is, then it probably
doesn't help you very much.  When you encounter situations like this,
you might sometimes need to read more about the software in question
before you will understand how to use it in GuixSD.  This is generally
true for any GNU/Linux distribution.

In cases like this, your best bet is to do the following:

1) Check the GNU Guix manual.  You can read it online [1] or on your
computer via the command "info guix".

2) Check the GNU Guix source.  It sounds like you already know how to do
that.  Sometimes, the source code contains helpful information that has
not yet been added to the manual.

3) Search the address@hidden email archives [2] for information.
Sometimes, the same question has been asked before.  It's also useful to
search the address@hidden email list [3], since a lot of discussion
happens there, also.

4) If you still don't understand something, ask for help at
address@hidden  You can also ask for help in our IRC chat room [4].

Nobody starts out knowing everything.  The Guix community is very
welcoming to newcomers, and I'm sure that if you take the time to ask
questions, you'll receive friendly, useful advice.  Good luck!
