As things stand, it is actually IMPOSSIBLE for a Windows user to get a Darcs repo onto their machine
* darcs pull -a http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc
fails with the case-sensitivity bug
* Get the tarball http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc-HEAD-2007-12-16-ghc-corelibs-testsuite.tar.bz2
darcs pull -a http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc
fails with the gzopening bug
I believe, however, that if we put up a recent tarball of the GHC repo (replacing the one above, and all earlier versions), the getting that and pulling would work.
It's embarrassing not being able to get the sources at all.
So, do you think you could replace
with a more recent version?
