To be able to push to hub.darcs.net, I've done the conversion with "darcs
convert darcs-2" with the help of the advices from darcs developers --
after a "darcs optimize reorder", and the resulting darcs-2 repo had no
problems with pushing to (a clone of) your darcs-2 repo at hub.darcs.net.
(Although one thing that still appears strange to me is that some tags
were lost in my result of the conversion, but not in your darcs-2 repo.
I've described all this in the previous messages in this thread.)
Anyway, now, this darcs-2 mirror of the upstream code.haskell.org darcs-1
repo is at http://hub.darcs.net/imz/language-c_hackage
It is "compatible" with your darcs-2 repo at hub.darcs.net, and compared
to it has 2 extra patches. These are the last two changes in the
"official upstream" darcs-1 repo (they are from December 2014).
