Hi Efraim and Simon,

thank you for your very quick reply! I read your messages after I tried
my "guix build" attempt

Actually this is a in-place *displacement* (with HTML) :-O

Fortunately Guix is amazing \O/

Anyway: I guess there will be potentially other issues like this one in
the future (permanent redirections to web pages instead of sources) and
unfortunately (AFAIU) Guix will not be able to use alternative sources
like Software Heritage: WDYT about considering 301 and 302 HTTP codes as
"soft failures" and making Guix considering the alternative sources?

Problems like this one are very bad for our time machine, I'm just
thinking if Guix can do something to prevent them.

Oh yes... download (preseed the file)!

I did:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

$ guix download

Starting download of /tmp/guix-file.QYSPMo
following redirection to 
 icu4c-64_2-src.tgz  22.9MiB                                                    
                                               11.5MiB/s 00:02 
[##################] 100.0%

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

and guix pull is going on now, building half of the world! :-)


Thanks a lot! Gio'
