[arch-haskell] Snap web framework - not in ArchHaskell?
Wed Oct 9 09:31:04 UTC 2013
Getting packages into arch-haskell just requires someone to put in the time
and maintenance effort.
There's a section at
improving Arch Haskell.
If you get familiar with cblrepo and start a haskell-snap repository, that
would be the first step towards getting Snap into arch-haskell.
You might want to build on Nicola's haskell-happstack repository (in case
many of the dependencies are shared), or at least use it for inspiration.
