[Haskell-cafe] is it normal for docs to be pending for 24 hours?

I'm very sorry!  I did not mean to offend.  I take Simon PJ seriously in 
his call to have a productive, respectful discourse in the Haskell 

To be clear, I did not object to resourcet linking to Stackage; what I 
objected to is that the link to stackage is in place of having any sort 
of description of resourcet, rather than in addition to it.  To me, that 
feels like it is making Hackage less useful (by denying it the package 
description) rather than making the most of Hackage, even though it 
isn't perfect.  This makes me a little grouchy, and perhaps this 
grouchiness seeped into my comments, for which I apologize.

Also, Hackage does have the ability to upload docs very conveniently, 
via "cabal upload --documentation", so this can be used to work around 
the fact that "Hackage documentation generation is not reliable."

We need to all work together in good faith to make the Haskell ecosystem 
better.  I am doing my best to do that, even if I am not perfect.  I 
have already volunteered privately to Gershom B to work on the Hackage 
documentation generation code.  I would like to make Hackage docs more 
reliable.  This may or may not involve integrating with the S3 docs.  
That is a technical decision, and no slight should be implied, whatever 
the outcome.

Once again, I'm sorry if I have not succeeded in upholding Simon PJ's 
standards for the Haskell community.  I genuinely appreciate the 
contributions you and FP Complete have made to the Haskell ecosystem.
