Re: Packaging hoogle


I am maintaining ghc-mod package.
Today, it can insert "import Module" for haskell function with hoogle command.
# It's too similar to eclipse. :)

I would like to support the ghc-mod's function.

I think it's a big problem.
How about "hoogle" package don't contain database,
and we don't provide "hoogle-data" package also.

It's good solution for me, that "hoogle" package automatically execute
"hoogle data".
If the command got error, user manually run "update-hoogle" command.
The "update-hoogle" command is equivalent to "hoogle data" command.

If hoogle's database is located at /var/lib/hoogle/xxxx,
the database can be update by user own.
