Hi Andy,

I'm the author of this advice. I think it's still correct. It's mostly sanity 
checks that you would run to ensure you can get packages from this channel. 
Most of it is scattered around the manual, mostly in the manual installation 

~/.config/guix/current is where your new guix (the one you pulled with the 
channel) is installed. If it's not first in $PATH, you're at risk that some 
other guix will be used instead.

hash is a command that removes an entry from the shell's cache. If this is your 
first pull, the guix you used comes from another location that is recorded by 
the shell, so you have to clear the cache to use the newly pulled guix. If your 
guix already comes from the correct location, it'll be useless but it won't
