Heya Giuseppe and all,

Here’s a snippet for Guix and the Shepherd:

<a name="guix"></a><h3 id="guix"><a 
href="";>GNU Guix</a></h3>

  GNU Guix is the GNU package manager.

  GNU Guix provides state-of-the-art package management features such
  as transactional upgrades and roll-backs, reproducible build
  environments, unprivileged package management, and per-user
  profiles. It uses low-level mechanisms from the Nix package manager,
  but packages are defined as native Guile modules, using extensions
  to the Scheme language—which makes it nicely hackable.
  It maintains their list of ideas for GSOC in an external
  <a href="";>

<a name="shepherd"></a><h3 id="shepherd"><a 
href="";>The GNU Shepherd</a></h3>

The GNU Daemon Shepherd or GNU Shepherd, formerly known as GNU dmd, is
a service manager that looks after the herd of system services. It
provides a replacement for the service-managing capabilities of
SysV-init (or any other init) with a both powerful and beautiful
dependency-based system with a convenient interface.

<p>Project ideas for the GNU Shepherd are kept in an external webpage
  alongside those for GNU Guix:
