Re: haskell-debian vs. newest HaXml
I can update Debian.Report to build against the newer HaXml now that
it is available in sid.
The debian directory in Debain is what we use to build -- so it "works
There are other libraries and apps that depend on extra, though I am
not sure if any are headed for sid at the moment. If packaging Extra
is a big issue, the Debian library only depends on a couple small
functions. We could copy those functions over. It's unlikely we would
remember to apply any future bug fixes or updates in both locations
though. So, we will need to add comments reminding us..

It would be nice to see an updated version of debian soon.
Also, what’s the state of inclusion of debian in Debian (*g*)? Besides
Extra, all dependencies are available. I’m not sure if Extra itself
ought to be packaged separately in Debian, though. Is the code of
that’s used by debian really shared with something else, or could it
moved to the debian cabal package?
