[Haskell-cafe] Fwd: ByteString Parsec clone

I tried to get Dan's thoughts on cloning parts of the Parsec interface
and some of the documentation but none of the emails addresses I've
tried seem to work. What's allowed when it comes to duplicating
something like an API? What about the documentation? I intend it to be
released under BSD3 which I believe is used for Parsec as well.

Anyone know how I can reach Dan?

I've written, but yet not published, a ByteString version of parts of
the Parsec API as a part of a web application server project. I've
currently used almost the exact wording from your documentation (as
the semantics of the functions is intended to be the same as in
Parsec.) Are you OK with that?

P.S. I intend to give my library a different name as it has different
module structure and doesn't support a lot of Parsec's features. It
will be BSD licensed.

Best regards,

Johan Tibell
