Subject: Re: Q: language-c upstream repo

Hi Ivan,
the hub.darcs.net repository is a mirror of http://code.haskell.org/language-c (the official upstream) that was created to simplify contributing.
Conversion to darcs-2 was not straightforward IIRC, and the update of the repository did not work out.That's why code.haskell.org is still darcs-1.
Best, Benedikt

       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.

       Best regards,
