13:04 gh_ hi
13:04 gh_ I'm abount to release 2.10.2
13:20 gh_ changes are  at http://hub.darcs.net/darcs/darcs-2.10/changes + new README
13:49 mizu_no_oto joined #darcs

14:03 gh_ http://hackage.haskell.org/package/darcs-2.10.2
14:36 sm nice gh_
14:37 gh_ sm, I hope darcsden "just builds" with this version :)
14:37 sm I'll let you know.. the sandi change will help
14:38 sm to get NEWS to show up as changelog on hackage, it may need to be renamed to eg CHANGES
14:39 sm yes, here are the supported names: https://github.com/haskell/hackage-server/blob/master/Distribution/Server/Packages/ChangeLog.hs
14:39 gh_ oh
14:42 sm it's great that releases are coming out more frequently
14:43 gh_ I'd go with the CHANGELOG name. I've been fighting again the overloaded use of the word "changes" in darcs for a while :)
14:45 sm perhaps http://darcs.net/Binaries#compiling-from-source should mention stack more and HP less
14:46 sm I'm not expecting you to do everything single-handed - just noting
14:50 gh_ sm, good idea, I haven't used stack yet but it seems we should say something about it
14:51 sm and all the old stuff on that page could be moved to an old binaries page
14:51 Meeh joined #darcs
14:51 sm a nice cleanup task, anyone interested ?
14:52 sm here are some stack notes, eg: http://hledger.org/download
15:05 sm gh_: I just pulled the latest darcs 2.10 branch
15:06 sm and I just want to note, I would find myself contributing patches now if the process were simpler
15:07 sm it is simply far too opaque and non-standard, no casual committer is ever going to contribute
15:09 sm I know well this is certainly not your fault, I'm just saying
15:09 gh_ sm, thanks, I remember you already gave arguments some time ago about the contribution process.. was it on the mailing list, or more on IRC? maybe last year or more
15:09 gh_ I remember we discussed switching everything to hub.darcs.net
15:10 sm I don't remember.. it's been my feeling for a long time. It's not even about using darcs hub, just a simple standard way to propose a patch (like edit, record, darcs send back in the day)
15:13 gh_ I'm not sure I understand, you say record+send is ok but badly documented?
15:14 sm gh_: if I darcs send in eg the darcs-2.10 or -screened or -reviewed branch, will the patch go somewhere sensible ? if so my complaint is nullified
15:15 gh_ sm, the bundle will go to the patch tracker, which in turn sends a mail to darcs-devel
15:17 sm which in theory as a casual committer I can ignore.. ok, can I try renaming NEWS to CHANGELOG or did you already do it ?
15:24 gh_ sm, I already did i
15:24 gh_ *it
15:24 sm ah, cool
15:25 sm I'm fiddling with sendmail on osx
15:27 sm sending mail is not so easy these days
15:33 gh_ have you tried msmtp ?
15:34 gh_ http://darcs.net/Msmtp
15:37 sm woo! got postfix talking to fastmail
15:38 sm gh_: which repo would has your change, if I want to pull it ?
15:38 Riastradh joined #darcs
15:38 gh_ sm, all of them already :)
15:39 gh_ if you mean the changelog change
15:39 sm hm, maybe hub hasn't mirrored it yet
15:40 sm yup
15:41 sm huh, is it really only mirroring every 2 hours now ? looks that way
15:42 sm gh_: one question, do I have to be in the right branch to send a patch ?
15:43 gh_ yeah the mirroring delay was raised after some mess happening some time ago..
15:44 gh_ sm, all branches send to the same address (patches .at. darcs.net)
15:44 gh_ sm, so no
15:44 sm great
15:45 sm and I see HACKING points to the wiki page which has a lot of detail
15:47 sm so my darcs-dev-fu has been restored a little. Thanks for your work gh_, later..
15:47 gh_ :) thanks
15:51 gh_ I hope we get some time uploading bundles to darcsden from darcs..
