Ummm... Now I'm completely confused, perhaps I'm using darcs in a suboptimal
way. Anyway, let's not forget the small minority of people at home behind
something slower than T1, which like to switch off their boxes from time to
time... (including me ;-) My usage scenario is still the same as it has been
for lots of years:
* I work on GHC from home.
* My computer is not running 24/7, therefore everyhing cron-lilke is a
* I'm behind something reasonably fast for home purposes (currently 2Mbit/s
* I need all of GHC + extralibs.
* Non-partial darcs repositories seem to be necessary for development to
keep oneself in a sane state of mind.
* I need to be able to push my changes to darcs.haskell.org (possible via
SSH only, I guess).
To work like this, I did the obvious (at least obvious for me): "darcs get"
full repositories via SSH (a Herculean effort, lasting more than half a day),
synching everything via "darcs-all pull" (i.e. effectively via SSH, taking
about 20min), pushing via plain "darcs push" (i.e. SSH again, not fast, but
bearable). Is there anything wrong with that? Hints?
