And GHC is now usable from the new darcs setup. I've updated the
instructions on the wiki:
All of the packages are sync'd from CVS except for Cabal - it seemed
more sensible to use the existing Cabal repo directly. However I've
taken a branch of that Cabal repo to add the fptools Makefiles for now;
the branch is in http://darcs.haskell.org/packages/Cabal.
I added a script darcs-all at the top-level of the ghc tree which
automates invoking darcs on the various sub-repos. To get a whole tree,
$ darcs get --partial http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc
$ cd ghc
$ chmod +x ./darcs-all
$ ./darcs-all get
and to pull new changes:
$ ./darcs-all pull
Please test, as we'd like to switch over as soon as possible.
