Hi Andreas and all,

Vagrant pointed me to
<https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=905272#10> so I
thought I’d chime in as upstream maintainer of the Guile bits in GnuTLS.

I do remember you experienced segfaults that led you to remove
guile-gnutls from Debian some time ago, understandably, though I forgot
the exact details.

I would encourage you to reconsider: since that time, the code base has
evolved and we’re now targeting Guile 2.2 primarily instead of 2.0 back
then.  Thanks to Nikos et al., GnuTLS is on GitLab-CI and builds with
Guile bindings:


There haven’t been any issues that I’m aware of.  We also build GnuTLS
with Guile bindings in Guix on 4 architectures, without problems.

If you encounter issues running the test suite, I’ll take a look and
hopefully I won’t let it slip through this time.
