Re: "profile contains conflicting entries"

Hi, to add some info,

currently gnu/packages/glib.scm in guix.git defines
glib at version 2.70.2
glib-next at version 2.73.3

and meld depends on glib while  guile-g-golf depends on glib-next

supposedly glib-next can replace glib but I assume that may impact
many gnome things and may be risky.

In any case, suggestions on work sounds would be greatly appreciated
