17:12 sm g'day all
17:13 sm notdan: I made your -local-take2 branch a fork of darcsden trunk so it shows up at http://hub.darcs.net/simon/darcsden/patches , is that ok ?
17:23 sm notdan: what main features/categories do these 47 patches fall into ?
17:25 * Heffalump appears
17:26 * gh_ materialises
17:46 sm hi gh_, could a 2.10.1 tag be recorded ?
17:46 sm (in trunk ?)
17:46 sm or does it have its own changes in the release branch ?
17:47 gh_ there is one change that cannot go back into the main branch :(
17:47 sm ah, ok
17:50 sm when I pull -a from the 2.10 repo on hub or on darcs.net, using darcs 2.11 or darcs-2.9.7, I get  Codec.Compression.Zlib: premature end of compressed stream :/
17:52 sm this is on a mac. I see it working as expected on gnu/linux
17:56 sm same thing if I pull from a local repo into this one. Worked around by getting a fresh repo.
18:05 Heffalump upcoming GHCs should make it much easier to have stack traces
18:05 Heffalump which might help us track down this kind of annoying problem that isn't easily reproducible
18:11 Heffalump notdan: shall we meet in the next few days?

18:47 sm oh I can't wait for that
18:48 * sm . o O ( python/java-esque stack traces from haskell )
18:54 sm Heffalump: any further thoughts on http://hub.darcs.net/simon/darcs-screened/patch/20150623000002-3c3f9 ? I don't think it need bring any new maintenance effort on you
18:54 sm I'll update it if noone else does
18:55 sm it also helps with darcsden setup

19:45 Heffalump I don't have any particular objection beyond not wanting to maintain it - could it go in contrib/ ?
19:47 sm no, that wouldn't be very useful
19:47 sm unless we want contributors to jump through hoops :)
19:48 sm it usually sits in the top dir alongside the cabal file so that clone repo, cd repo, stack install works
19:52 Heffalump if it ends up in a release could it get stale?
19:53 sm if it worked once, it should "always" work - that's one of the features
19:54 sm it's pinned to a stackage snapshot and ghc version, both of which will remain downloadable
19:54 sm + a few specific extra package releases from hackage
20:03 notdan sm: its fine (re: trunk). as for the features.. well its most of the code that ive recorded. Its mostly about the local backend, most of the stuff we discussed here on IRC. in addition to that the "download zip" button. Sorry i am on my phone atm, but a great deal of the stuff is documented on the wiki page
20:03 notdan Heffalump: sure! what date/time were you thinking?
20:06 Heffalump notdan: I think I can do any day this week except Wednesday
20:08 notdan Thrusday then?
20:08 notdan usual London 8pm?
20:08 Heffalump notdan: 47 patches is quite a lot to get an upstream maintainer to absorb at once, might need to think about breaking up the submission if possible or providing a more extensive commentary
20:08 Heffalump sure
20:09 Heffalump wiki page = http://darcs.net/GSoC/2015-Darcsden
20:10 Heffalump sm: fair enough
20:11 sm it's ok, I can absorb them with discussion, it helps if I can mentally group them as I read. Zip download, local browsing - got it. (If we discussed other features, I forgot)
20:29 sm "stack build|install" can now be used with darcsden, problem reports welcome
20:29 sm and hub-dev is now built with darcs 2.10.1
20:30 sm notdan: "Update to use the new PatchFormat type" seems incompatible with darcs 2.10.1
20:30 sm done for today, see you
