I haven't had much time to work on gitit + filestore lately, and I'll have even less in the future. I'd rather focus my programming time on pandoc. So I'd be game if someone wanted to take the project in a new direction. Looks as if there are already Haskell bindings to libgit2: http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/hlibgit2 A first step might be rewriting filestore to use libgit and libdarcs instead of shelling out to the programs. It also might be nice to create a filestore instance that uses a persistent in-memory datastore like acid-state; this would be very fast, and appropriate for a wiki (like hawiki) with mostly textual content. I would also not object to a rewrite using Yesod -- the type-safe URLs and the support for subsites would both be really useful in gitit.
