[Haskell-cafe] Reverse dependencies in Hackage

A few weeks ago I wrote a patch that adds reverse dependencies to
hackage [1]. I have know hosted a small test hackage which
demonstrates this feature. It can be found here:


Browse to your favorite packages and find out how much other packages
depend on them!

I also noticed that work is underway to implement a new hackage-server
[2] based on happstack. If people find this feature useful I could
also write a patch against the hackage-server code base [3].
