Do we need > both? hothasktags only produces VIM ctag files but no emacs etag files. Emacs haskell- mode seems to expect and only support hasktags. I just did an experimental packaging of hasktags just by running cabal-debian --debianize --quilt over the code as explained in http://www.mhatta.org/blog/2013/03/21/recipe-for-debian-haskell-packaging AND IT WORKED!!! I've never ever had such a great packaging experience in any other language! I reviewed the source code and signed it: https://github.com/thkoch2001/hasktags I would be very thankful, if somebody with more debian-haskell experience could package (and maybe even backport) hasktags. As I wrote, it seems to be the only missing part to set up a basic but productive emacs based development environment on Debian. Regards, Thomas Koch
