My standard layout is:
where _darcs is autogenerated by darcs, and dist is autogenerated by
cabal-install. The README and TODO files are optional of course. The src
and test directories contain parallel hierarchies of source code so that
the src can be compiled and distributed without exposing dependencies on
QuickCheck, SmallCheck, HUnit, etc.
If the project is multilanguage then I'll have ./src/hs/, ./src/c,
./src/java, etc and the ./build.xml or whatever is standard for
compiling the other languages plus a Makefile to run all the various
build tools. Often this means adding ./bin, ./lib, ./doc, etc as the
output destinations for those other tools.
