Sorry for stalling this discussion a bit. I think we reached a
conclusion of sorts, here's my proposed plan in detail:
- We use nested repositories. This is forward compatible
with the various schemes for better handling of nested
repos in the future that were raised on the Darcs list.
- We create the following darcs repositories:
containing the files in fptools, plus
these subdirectories (only):
distrib, docs, ghc, glafp-utils, mk
- synchronisation: we go with David's suggestion of starting
with CVS->darcs syncing, so that we can test working with
the darcs repo and letting people pull it, and then switch
the direction of the sync later.
- branches: these are quite tricky. I'm only interested in
the ghc-6-4-branch right now, and this doesn't need to
sync with HEAD, but it would be nice if it had
a common history up to the branch point. We can leave
the other branches for now.
John, are you happy to go and set this up? Anything else you need?
