Hi.  The last paragraph of [[info:guix#Invoking guix package]] says:

    However, note that package transformations are lost when upgrading;
    to preserve transformations across upgrades, you should define your
    own package variant in a Guile module and add it to
    =E2=80=98GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH=E2=80=99 (*note Defining Packages::).

This contradicts the earlier information, in the same section, about
`guix package -u':

    When upgrading, package transformations that were originally applied
    when creating the profile are automatically re-applied (*note Package
    Transformation Options::).

Regards
