[Haskell-cafe] managing local cabal package database

Dear Cafe readers,

I'm wondering what do you guys use as the general method in developing
projects using your own private projects?

Cabal allows to specify a directory for local packages ('local-repo' in
'.cabal/config') with specific structure. Are there any scripts that take a
git repo, checkout its tags one by one and put them in some specified
directory in the correct way?

The crude structure I'm imagining is that I'd like to reuse general purpose
stuff I have made myself before, and have it available similar to having it
in Hackage. Why I don't want to put my things in the Hackage itself, is
that the code often changes fast, and would be little help to others until
some later date, when things have calmed down..

(Does this seem a reasonable procedure, or how do you do it?)
