I'm afraid xmobar is no longer maintained in darcs, and the latest darcs
sources are very outdated.  The current source tree is in github:

If you know git, the best way to submit your patches would be via a

page (the "zip" button):

and send me a diff file, no problem!

Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks in advance for your work! :)
