[Haskell-cafe] Some questions about Fudgets library

Hi Antonio,

I have contemplated publishing Fudgets on Hackage, and the reason for the broken
link is that I uploaded a package candidate [1]. But Fudgets has remained
essentially the same since the mid 90s, and while it still works and is
available from the Fudgets home page [2], its age shows in many ways, and that's
why I hesitate to publish it on Hackage...

Best regards,
Thomas H
