Beta testers wanted!
Lemmih (mostly) has been working on a tool which will download and
install Haskell packages and their dependencies. This tool should
work for any cabal-compatible package.
We're looking for beta testers to try out "cabal-get" (for downloading
and installing) and "cabal-put" (for uploading to the central
repository). We're also looking for more developers to work on this.
The home, for now is here:
and to get cabal-get, grab the bootstrapper:
darcs get http://hackage.haskell.org/darcs/cabal-get-bootstrap
And execute the Install.lhs file. You may have to modify it slightly
if you don't like the defaults.
After you install cabal-get, you should be able to install cabal-put
cabal-get update && cabal-get install cabal-put
Darcs repositories for all the tools are here:
Questions or problems? Email me or Lemmih.
