Hi Sigbjorn,

Is there any plan to transition from CVS to darcs?

HDirect is removed from darcs'ing fptools, and left cvs long ago.
Because HDirect is not active.


But HDirect is updated sometime.
(We can see HDirect moves 'comlib' into a hierarchic setting,
System.Win32.Com.* two month ago.)

And Visual Haskell project changes comlib.

Unfortunately these changes are independent. It forks comlib now.
So I want to know what is common change both repository and what
is useful change both version, easily.

I think darcs'ing HDirect and two comlib branch realise it. And
that helps to revive Visual Haskell's HDirect that can generate
it's comlib source code.

Best Regards,
