Now all packages, including those without exposed modules, are
included. Also, I've attempted to parse the author lists into JSON
arrays. Due to the free format of many fields in the .cabal package
descriptions, including author list, there are many exceptional cases
where they are ill-parsed, but at least the JSON file is well-formed
and validates at jsonlint.com.
Hopefully compressed JSON data:
Raw JSON data in case the compressed doesn't work:
The hackage data updated as of yesterday (June 14). Will work on daily
incremental updates from Hackage RSS feed soon.
