Hey all, I mentioned (on the long SLURP thread) that I was thinking about a general proposal for provenance-qualified dependencies to reduce coupling in the haskell ecosystem. Having worked it out a bit, I think the bigger win is it also provides a way to specify dependencies on git repos, etc., which has been an oft-requested feature.
I don't want to submit it as an ecosystem proposal proper without further polish, and I held off on bugging a larger audience of cabal folks until the 2.2 branch was cut. So now I'm passing this along for further comment and polish before I make a real proposal: https://github.com/gbaz/ghc-proposals/blob/patch-1/proposals/0000-provenance-qualified-imports.rst There's no urgency, but it would be good to get some feedback in the next few weeks if possible. Cheers, Gershom _______________________________________________ cabal-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.haskell.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cabal-devel
