News and discussions
- Venues confirmed for the darcs hacking sprint, 25-26 October. Brighton and Portland are CONFIRMED; Paris is likely. Come hack with us!
- Planning darcs 2.0.3. We have started making steps towards a release for the end of September. Eric thinks we are only a buildbot and couple of bugfixes away from a prerelease.
- Darcs patch theory. Ian Lynagh continues his patch theory research. He has written up a nice explanation and a working prototype of a darcs-like patch theory.
- Retiring GHC 6.4. The darcs team would like to know if anybody is still using GHC 6.4 to compile darcs, so that we can focus on later versions (6.6 and 6.8).
Thanks to our patch reviewers for this week for giving David a hand!
