03:28 pointfree "Fixed random curve25519-sha256 kex failures. k needed to be an mpint not a string."
03:30 pointfree darcsden will now work properly with curve25519-sha256@libssh.org kex!

03:34 pointfree Heffalump, fr33domlover: what's the way forward with ssh from here?

07:20 fr33domlover pointfree, I'm waiting for Heffalump to figure out an issue I have with darcs rebase (I changed file locations and didn't `darcs mv`, now it's difficult to fix it...)
07:21 fr33domlover Then we'll need to somehow merge our changes, dunno how yet - waiting for Heffalump to decide what he wants to merge first and how
07:22 Heffalump fr33domlover/pointfree: apologies, been a bit busy for a few days
07:24 fr33domlover Heffalump, no problem :) apologies for causing the darcs mv issue

19:28 pointfree Heffalump, fr33domlover: it might be useful to merge in changes from this fork of ssh into the darcs repo, especially because we can't use libssh2 as a client for tests anymore: https://github.com/cdepillabout/ssh
19:32 inhortte joined #darcs
19:52 Heffalump that's a really useful fork (not) :-)
19:52 Heffalump totally changed the code around, changed VCS, and no attempt to submit back
20:59 sm we can fix that.. git clone, git-fast-export | darcs import :)
21:00 pointfree Not sure if they successfully implemented the ssh client or not...
21:01 sm darcs get https://github.com/REPO (or even darcs pull) would be a fun feature eh
21:01 pointfree darcs hub bootstrap from github feature?
21:02 sm why not
21:04 pointfree Wasn't there also a darcs bootstrap feature in darcs hub at one point? What happened to it?
21:04 sm yes.. it caused some kind of trouble so was disabled
21:04 sm excessive memory use on certain repos probably
21:05 * fr33domlover is implementing the git pack protocol in pure Haskell
21:06 fr33domlover for use in my repo hosting Yesod web app, and for everyone else to use of course :)
21:06 sm sounds useful
21:06 fr33domlover it allows to write a git repo server without the git binary or libgit2 etc.
21:07 fr33domlover possibly Haskell will then be the only language (i.e. the first one) to have that
21:07 sm really ? that seems surprising
21:08 fr33domlover well, i'm not done coding it yet, but baically what you need on the server as a minimum is git-upload-pack and git-receive-pack which allow for git pull, git push, git clone, git ls-remote
21:08 fr33domlover once you have these, you can have a basic git server
21:09 sm it seems surprising that this would be the first reimplementation of it, I meant
21:09 fr33domlover sm, i didn't look deeply but it seems everyone uses the git binary or libgit2 bindings
21:09 fr33domlover Gitlab, Gogs, etc.
21:09 fr33domlover all those git hosting web apps
21:10 sm fr33domlover: listening to the recent ssh-related chat, it seems like darcs is failing to make collaboration easy right now. Is that so ? Is it because of some weakness in the new rebase feature ?
21:11 fr33domlover Haskell is known, after all, for having so many implementations of protocols and formats and parsers etc.
21:11 fr33domlover sm, I changed file paths using manual moves instead of darcs mv
21:12 fr33domlover and I'm failing to tell darcs to forget what I did and record a `darcs mv` instead
21:12 fr33domlover it may be a bug specific to `darcs mv`
21:13 * sm . o O ( darcs, you had ONE JOB to do... )
21:20 Heffalump it turns out to be tricky to rebase the patches with the remove/add into ones with a move.
21:20 Heffalump The end result might just be to re-record the lot
21:20 Heffalump I plan to take a proper look at it tomorrow.
21:21 sm always an option, sometimes I think we don't reach for that enough
21:21 sm (re-recording)
21:23 Heffalump well, it does indicate a problem with rebase, so I want to understand it better
21:24 sm +1
21:25 sm I will be grateful for that when I hit it myself
21:26 Heffalump re darcs import - I doubt that would create a compatible repository
