15:36 enthropy hello. Would it be possible to add an apply posthook cabal sdist?
15:36 enthropy to the darcs.net repository
15:37 enthropy http://code.haskell.org/xmonad/_darcs/prefs/defaults is an example
15:37 enthropy this way people could "cabal install http://darcs.net/snapshot.tar.gz"
15:38 enthropy (or whatever you want to call the snapshot)
16:23 favonia joined #darcs
16:35 gh_ enthropy, yes
16:36 enthropy well better would be to upload a version to hackage that works with ghc-7.8, but in the meantime it would be nice to have an easy way to bootstrap (for people that don't have binary packages for whatever reason)
16:57 gh_ enthropy, we plan to release a 2.8.5 that compiles with ghc 7.8
16:58 gh_ Heffalump, in fact maybe we should release it asap
17:07 gh_ Heffalump, in fact following enthropy's suggestion, I'd prefer we used "darcs dist --zip" instead of "cabal sdist", in order to not have the version number in the archive file, and it should also be faster
17:08 gh_ Heffalump, that would involve to remove the failing predist options ( http://bugs.darcs.net/issue1389 )
17:10 gh_ Heffalump, forget about that, dist --zip ignores predist anyway
17:13 Heffalump I think 2.8.5 is ready, I just need to go through the release process
17:13 Heffalump (feel free to do so yourself if you get to it before me, just mention it on IRC in case of a race. I'll probably do it later this week)
17:53 Heffalump oh, the release of network 2.6 means that a bit more fiddling might be called for to support it (it's complicated slightly by the network-uri split, not sure if darcs uses that)
19:12 gh_ yes it does, in src/Darcs/Repository/External.hs and src/Darcs/Util/Download/HTTP.hs
