or, how about a separate repo for all the parts of the developer
wiki relevant to building, testing, hacking, and a cron job that
records and pushes from the wiki files nightly?
i still tend to work offline a lot, especially when i want to get
things done without distractions. and i always run into this
"everyone is online" issue with ghc: the building guide, the
test instructions, the commentary, the validation guidelines,
.. all unavailable if i go offline after 'darcs-all pull'..
those who like or need to be offline when hacking
could then simply add the wikidocs package to the
darcs-all targets, and happily work in peace (or in a
plane, where much of ghc was born?-).
