Spelunking Darcs for the Good of MissingH???

Submitted by metaperl on Thu, 07/28/2005 - 7:39pm.

I have not grokked the darcs source code, but from using it, I am willing to be that it has some very good file and i/o libraries that would be generally useful.

Has anyone considered factoring out this functionality into MissingH for re-use elsewhere?

I think you're exactly right. I've had that thought before myself, but haven't had the time to do anything about it.

Another thought I've had is turning darcs into a Haskell library for working with darcs repositories. I think that could make writing programs that automate darcs a lot more pleasant.

Anyway, if you have time to pull anything from darcs into MissingH, feel free to darcs get http://darcs.complete.org/missingh, hack around, and darcs send any patches.

It would be great to have more people hacking on MissingH.

That reminds me, I need to update the LGPL/BSD branch...
