Hi all,

I'd like to push the following patch (see bottom of email)
to GHC's time repository, but I do not seem to have permissions.
Upstream has already taken the fix but the version we currently
have in the repo is quite a bit older than upstream.

Can someone do it for me / give me bits? Thanks.


commit 44c23839f964592946c889626f8acbd1f4f72e55

    Remove useless internal library version bounds.
    These bounds never do anything, and in Cabal HEAD cause
    errors which cause GHC's build system to choke.
