17:06 gh_ mornfall, I've pushed to screened a patch that copies hashed-storage to darcs' repository. Can you add me to the maintainer group of hashed-storage on hackage so I can upload version 0.5.11?
17:44 mekeor joined #darcs
17:47 mekeor why does "darcs get mekeor@hub.darcs.net:mekeor/Garepinoh" fail with "Not a repository[.] [...] (scp) failed to fetch: mekeor@hub.darcs.net:mekeor/Garepinoh//_darcs/inventory" ?
17:48 sm mekeor: your ssh is working, right ? http://hub.darcs.net/#how-do-i-configure-ssh-access
17:48 sm if so, what if you drop the mekeor/ directory prefix ?
17:49 sm user prefix
17:49 mekeor hm. doesn't seem so.  i just changed my ssh-pubkey, actually.
17:49 mekeor and ssh doesn't work. okay. so, it's the public ssh key which doesn't work. which is strange because i updated it...
17:49 mekeor hm.
17:50 mekeor "$ ssh mekeor@hub.darcs.net" => "Permission denied (publickey).".
17:50 sm check that it pasted properly. Maybe a line break in the middle ?
17:51 mekeor ok. :) – thanks, btw, you are very helpful and nice :)
17:52 mekeor sm: thanks. yeah. that was it. :) :D works now :) (– i should probably have debugged more myself, i guees...)
17:52 sm \o/ no problem :)
17:53 sm darcs community is small enough we can crowdsource such issues
17:53 mekeor (un)fortunately ;)
17:54 sm let me know if you can think of a documentation or code patch that would help in this situation
17:55 sm I guess a clearer error from darcs would be best
18:01 sm eh.. if show repo says Format: hashed, is that the latest (darcs-2) format ?
18:02 sm no it isn't. How do I convert it all the way to "hashed, darcs-2" ?
18:11 sm resolved.. not sure what happened there, too many repos

19:20 sm why is cabal install darcs-screened failing this way ? https://gist.github.com/simonmichael/8360730
19:27 sm I see, I had to turn that flag on explicitly
19:33 sm so currently it's: (cd hashed-storage && cabal install -j) && cabal install -fforce-char8-encoding -f-curl -j
19:34 alexei joined #darcs
19:42 gh_ sm, yes, until I can upload hashed-storage to hackage
19:43 sm nod

21:17 mornfall hmm
21:18 mornfall I'd have imagined hashed-storage would be built as part of darcs, which shouldn't be hard. Just list the sources along with darcs sources in darcs.cabal, no?
21:21 mornfall While I don't claim that hashed-storage as it is on hackage is particularly useful, it won't help if it accumulates bitrot from hacks to accomodate darcs.
21:22 mornfall Ideally it'd be removed and only used for building historical darcs versions.
21:22 mornfall Well, probably not removed, dunno if it can be unlisted from the web interface.
21:22 mornfall Or if there's some official way to retire/obsolete hackage packages.
21:37 notdan Modern darcs doesn't use hashed-storage?
21:57 alexei___ joined #darcs
21:57 mornfall there's no such thing as modern darcs :-P
21:58 mornfall it does, but hashed-storage itself is obsolete
21:58 mornfall I ported darcs to a newer incarnation, but there was substantial resistance to applying the patches and I eventually burned out on the issue
21:59 notdan ouch :(
22:00 notdan I didn't look at the darcs codebase, but is it that bad?
22:00 mornfall well, it's far from good
22:08 n-dolio What's the new hashed-storage?
22:08 mornfall never released
22:19 Heffalump the darcs codebase isn't actually all that bad, most big codebases with a history tend to be at least somewhat ugly
22:20 Heffalump mornfall: I am actually using hashed-storage personally, so I'd rather you didn't retire it!
