[Haskell-cafe] Hackage and HaXml situation

In your particular problem there is another way:
Ask the distributors to ship both HaXmL versions..
(Most systems will install one only by default (an update supersedes the
older one :-( ) But most distributions do let you install two or more
versions (?)

I think the way to go is beeing able to represent all the work you've
I'd like to add a pointer to vxml on hackage. But it's still way to
unstable for a release.
How would branches look like?
We no longer have


But each version has a set of children and a set of parents (merges) ?

So hackage would no longer show

other versions: ... ... ...
childs:  branchX-0.3 branchY-0.4 branchZ-0.8
parents: .... ?

On the other hand the more packages / branches are on hackage the more
work packagers have to do..
