Isn't GNU Guix or Nix kind of something along these lines?

No idea for Guix. Nix has a package building recipe format like other package managers. Its difference resides in the fact it installs all versions of a package in a specific namespace, allowing multiple versions to coexist.

There is a nix project for using user repositories now - it allows wrangling package sources like: https://github.com/nix-community/NUR/blo...repos.json (these are not officially supported/is more AUR-like)

Guix is basically a Scheme version of that AFAICS.

And everything is free software. I haven't played around with nix too much, but I know that adding and using packages on Guix is supposed to be quite easy, see https://www.gnu.org/software/guix/blog/2...eagl-2018/ + GuidSD /= Guix (the package manger), so you could install Guix-packages on any distro.

In theory, yes, it was also reported to work on the Hurd, but I'm not sure how up-to-date that report is. I think their "GuixSD on the Hurd kernel" project is in a similar state.

I tried to make Guix (the package manager) work on Gentoo and I mostly failed though. Nix (the package manager) runs less badly.
