00:18 f-a I am going to sleep, the incriminated patch is here http://www.ariis.it/link/t/fixes-build-with-cabal-new_build.dpatch
00:19 f-a it is a simple fix to make darcs build with cabal new-build
00:19 f-a if it is useful, please apply it. Bonne nuit!

10:51 Heffalump f-a: I've been using darcs with cabal new-build for a while. Am I getting lucky because of my global package DB or something?
11:09 f-a joined #darcs
11:31 f-a Heffalump: mhhh, I don't know. Which cabal version do you use?
11:31 f-a (as those fields are apparently mandatory onli in 1.24+)
11:35 Heffalump I've been using first the released 1.24 and then a development version because of bugs in 1.24
11:36 f-a mhhh then I might be lagging behind you
11:36 Heffalump I kind of know in principle that those lines might be needed
11:36 f-a still I thought it was a requirement now, especially since darcs Setup is indeed custom
11:37 Heffalump I also want to make sure darcs keeps building fine with (at least slightly) older cabal-installs
11:38 f-a Heffalump: from 1.20 it should just ignore it
11:38 Heffalump I see, which probably makes it a safe change
11:39 f-a so we're talking ~2014, don't know if it is old enough for you (of for debianites out there)
11:39 Heffalump we already depend on 1.22.5 (not actually sure why)
11:40 Heffalump I suspect because that was shipped with whatever haskell-platform we think we support
11:51 Heffalump hmm, the PVP implies we should also have an upper bound on the Cabal dep, I wonder if that'll cause trouble in practice
11:51 Heffalump btw yes, you can just send your patch by email to patches@darcs.net, and it'll end up in the tracking system
11:52 f-a thanks
12:03 f-a I tried to register for a darcs wiki account: Server error: /var/lib/gitit/gitit-users: openFile: permission denied (Permission denied)
12:06 Heffalump oh, yes, I had to disable that to stop spammers :-( one sec, I'll temporarily re-enable it
12:07 Heffalump try now
12:07 Heffalump then let me know so I can disable it again
12:08 f-a Heffalump: do you think a "registration is closed now, go to #darcs to receive user and password" could be added? I'd add it myself if you point me at a repo
12:10 f-a registered, Heffalump , you might now close the dam again
12:13 Heffalump good idea - but the underlying software is gitit, so I'm not sure how trivial it is to tweak that
12:13 Heffalump changing the permissions was the simplest quick hack I could think of
12:14 Heffalump I could change the secret to something much more obscure, I guess, then even if it was given out here, a spammer would have to know to check the channel logs to find it
12:14 f-a that seems sensible
12:18 Heffalump btw, just for the record for anyone else administering the wiki, you also seem to have to restart the gitit daemon (with the /etc/init.d script) if you delete spam users from the users file
12:25 Heffalump I've asked on #hackage about the custom-setup, but it does seem logical to add it if it won't cause any harm
12:37 f-a I have another question: " [talking about darcs send] By default, the patch bundle is sent by email, although you may save it to a file. "
12:38 f-a is this the -O option? and does using -O mean the patch is not sent to the repo?
12:46 Heffalump yes
12:46 f-a thanks
12:46 Heffalump (though I can never remember which of -O and -o makes an auto-generated filename and which takes a filename argument)
13:06 Heffalump ok: the secret is now "patch-based-version-control" (no quotes)
13:07 Heffalump and account creation is re-enabled (if you know that secret)
13:09 f-a well done
