[Haskell-cafe] Q: language-c upstream repo

I've been interested in hacking language-c library a bit for my needs. (If 
it turns out useful and successful, I'll tell about it.)

And I've cloned the repo listed at 
https://hackage.haskell.org/package/language-c-0.4.7 , namely: 

Apart from my special hacks, I've also fixed some typos and so on.

But then I discovered that if I want to publish them on hub.darcs.net , I 
need a darcs-2 repo, and the initial one which I used for cloning is 
a darcs-1 repo.

I could do the conversion to darcs-2, but I read that it is not 
reproducible: run several times on the same set of patches it will give 
different results.

As I've discovered also a language-c repo at hub.darcs.net which looks 
like an upstream repo: http://hub.darcs.net/visq/language-c , I'm in doubt 
whether I should continue making my patches against the darcs-1 repo which 
is said to be upstream at hackage or against 
http://hub.darcs.net/visq/language-c whichis not officially declared as 
the upstream but looks more fresh.

..if I want to be able to send some of my patches upstream.
