Re: Bug#607424: ITP: haskell-bytestring-show -- Efficient conversion of values into readable byte strings.



Dear Takaki,

although some of our packages are in git (mostly because we could not
convince John of using Darcs), my large the majority is in darcs, and
most of the more active member of the group seem to prefer it. The main
advantage is that the darcs repositories are shown on 
http://pkg-haskell.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/pet.cgi
and the git ones do not, and personally, I find our darcs approach
slimmer and easier to handle than git (no checking out upstream and
pristine-tar branches etc.) and more suitable for simple packaging. More
difficult stuff with lots of patches etc. _might_ benefit von git, but
this is almost never the case with the DHG repositories.

Also, mass changes are easier with the Darcs repositories (is that
right, Marco, our man for mass changes?)

So unless you have a very large dislike for Darcs, I’d strongly suggest
to use the Darcs approach.

Thanks,
Joachim
