With darcs there is no need to have all the development be done in a central repository, right?
One can create a parallel repository for particular development goals,
and move changes into the central repository as needed. This is the
model used for Linux kernel development.
Guess it is not always easy for individual developers to give access to their repositories, and to keep darcs server running all the time.
Do you suggest that haskell.org would host such parallel repositories?
BTW, you can also attach module source, patch, haddock output files to the ticket, and just publish URLs to them.
Wonder if that can make work on this module somewhat easier.
