R F Opinions: To split or not to split haskell-doc
I maintain haskell-doc, an aggregate package of Haskell language
documentation. It is suggested by all Haskell implementations currently
packaged (hugs and ghc, the latter waiting for n-m processing).
It currently contains the language definition and nothing else, and I'm
about to add a tutorial. But here comes a problem: the definition is
non-free, the tutorial is free.
I see several options:
1. Add the tutorial to the package and leave the package in
non-free. This is easiest for me, but I don't like the
idea of putting free documentation into non-free
2. Create a new package, haskell-doc-free with only the tutorial.
No changes to haskell-doc. Or perhaps haskell-doc and
3. Split the current haskell-doc package into haskell-report
and haskell-library-report (for the two documents that form
the language definition) and create a new package
haskell-intro. Problem: What should the implementations
suggest? All three?
4. Do 3., but leave haskell-doc as an empty metapackage in the
