I'm pretty overwhelmed with things as it is and that's not going to change anytime soon. So I suppose this is an RFH message. I can still stick around as a comaintainer but it's a bit too much for myself alone. What's the Haskell team's preferred VCS? I prefer darcs myself but I suppose git is good too. I suppose uploading GHC 7 to unstable is fine already since it won't replace ghc6 packages due to renaming it to ghc. Just add a ghc6 pseudopackage after the release. I haven't yet tried building the new GHC or even had a good look at it. At least there are the usual things to do, like browsing through copyright headers and updating debian/copyright and looking at the build system, to see what's changed. Something needs to be done about the generated haddock documentation. The -doc packages should be able to be enough without the -dev packages, to build and maintain the index in ghc-doc, but that doesn't happen now.
