15:38 ThomasLocke Is this a good method to get the patch "hash" from darcs log? darcs log --max-count 1 | head -n1 | cut -d ' '  -f2
15:38 ThomasLocke Or is there some secret darcs sauce I'm missing out on?
17:53 Heffalump this may be a rather stupid question since I was probably around and involved when it happened, but anyone know where to edit the manual now?
17:54 Heffalump hmm, the fact that darcs.net/manual still has 2.8.4 is a bit fishy..
18:06 sm Heffalump: indeed
18:07 sm I see darcs.net needs ssh config MACs +hmac-sha1 now
18:09 sm the manual is being served from /home/darcs-unstable/reviewed/doc/manual/
18:13 stef204 joined #darcs
18:17 sm and the process for building it is lost. I seem to remember maybe kowey or gh last changing that
18:30 sm See http://hub.darcs.net/darcs/darcs-screened/changes/page/51. There used to be a bunch of tex files in doc/, gh removed all that and added a little bit of it to the commmand line help, it seems
18:33 sm let's be honest, it's more than a bit fishy, the manual has been in a coma the last five years
18:35 sm and the website/wiki on life support
18:35 Heffalump I guess you might say the same about the project :-)
18:36 sm I suppose that'd be fair too :) alas!
18:36 Heffalump ok, so apparently the manual is defunct. I wonder why we are still publishing it then.
18:37 sm not online docs would suck ?
18:37 sm not having
18:39 sm I don't think gh intended to lose the web manual entirely, I thought he was going to generate it from markdown. Maybe it wasn't completed ?
18:40 sm s/web//
18:57 Heffalump so this appears to be the plan: http://bugs.darcs.net/patch872
18:58 sm oh well done
19:03 sm so this gives a sort of manual: darcs help markdown | pandoc -r markdown -s --toc > darcs.html
19:04 sm and this gives a man page: darcs help manpage > darcs.1. This one is better
19:07 sm redirect `darcs help markdown`
19:07 sm into http://{www,wiki}.darcs.net/Commands. I see
19:08 Heffalump just sent an email with what I know to darcs-devel, will probably drop it for now unless there's a general burst of energy
19:09 sm good
