Re: Focusing our efforts: Key packages

Hi Joachim,

(first sorry for the late reply, but I was focused on other Debian work, and I just noticed that answering was easier than the thought)

ok, so my question wasn't so dumb (yeah! I still do not understand the
whole haskell stuff, but I need it for hedgewars, so I try to care and fix whatever I can)

So the solution you propose me are:
+bytestring-show key

(I really do not want to break stuff :) )


2) a cabal file

is that ok?

I do not know how to add it and what to exactly do with it.
(should I commit it and nothing more? should I remember to update it at each hedgewars release?)

thanks for clarifying,
