Hi Guix,

in order to improve availability of binary substitutes and download
speeds for many users, we will experiment with Amazon’s CloudFront CDN
service for  Note that this only concerns the
distribution of substitutes; builds still happen on the same build farm
as before,

Starting on Wednesday 23 at 01:15 UTC requests for substitutes that are
sent to will be served by the CDN instead.  This
experiment is expected to last up to one month.  The maintainers and
Guix system administrators will re-evaluate the use of a CDN for at that point.

If you prefer to bypass the CDN you can connect to directly as before.  On a Guix system you can
override the list of default substitute servers with this services

(modify-services %desktop-services
   config => (guix-configuration
              (inherit config)
               (list "";)))))

on behalf of the Guix maintainers
