17:41 gh_ hi
17:44 gh_ sm, what way do you prefer to handle feature requests for darcsden? on hub.darcs.net's bucktracker or darcs'?
17:44 sm gh_: the first, definitely
17:45 gh_ or you only accept patches :-)
17:45 amgarching joined #darcs
17:45 sm eh wait, feature requests ? I like to get those here first :)
17:45 gh_ sm, okay
17:45 gh_ haha
17:45 gh_ sm, my feature request is a "download zip" button, like on github
17:45 sm I find that some times bugtrackers fill up with wishes that are just clutter, better to discuss it
17:46 gh_ sm, which would create a .zip of the current version of the given project
17:46 sm not that the ideas are not good, but without someone to act on them they just obscure the bugs
17:46 gh_ sm, yes I sort of agree.. I could just implement it and sent it to you but these days I'm not sure I have time
17:47 sm do you find yourself needing that feature much ?
17:53 gh_ sm, myself no because I have darcs installed :-) but..
17:55 gh_ this message on twitter made me think of it: "currently installing haskell-platform, so that I can install darcs, so that I can build xmonad, so that I can try osxmonad #yakshaving"  ( https://twitter.com/marcusramberg/status/427907250179821568 )
17:58 gh_ I think it's a feature that makes projects hosted with darcs a little more darcs-agnostic, which is always welcome
17:58 dolio joined #darcs
17:58 gh_ I was also thinking of another piece of code that could useful (but not as part of darcsden): a javascript repo grabber
18:00 gh_ so that even code inside repositories not hosted on hub.darcs.net be easy to get

19:33 sm gh_: you're right, it's a good thing for reducing darcs lock-in
19:36 sm would be a nice addition
19:54 mizu_no_oto joined #darcs
20:28 mornfall (I think it would be even better as a hub service, so you could wget a repo-made-tarball, say wget "http://hub.darcs.net/tarball?repourl=http://...")
20:33 Heffalump that sounds like a great way to DoS hub
20:38 mornfall how is that different from downloading anything else from hub?
20:38 mornfall you have to manage bandwidth in any case, sure
20:47 Heffalump couldn't you force hub to download much more than you download from it using HEAD or a range request?
20:48 Heffalump I guess you can already ask hub to clone a repo from somewhere else
20:50 sm I thought that was disabled
20:50 Heffalump ah, ok :-)
20:51 sm it was another good way to DoS :)
