Developer access to Hat
This page tells you how to get darcs access to the latest, most current, Hat sources.
Viewing the darcs repository on the web
If you don't want to download the sources, you can view the current contents of the repository on the web here.
Remote Read-only Access
Read-only access is available to anyone - there's no need to ask us first. To get read-only access to the repository:
With read-only CVS access you can do anything except commit changes to the central repository. You can darcs record changes in your local tree, then submit them to us by email using darcs send.
Using the checked-out tree
The first thing to do after checking out a fresh tree is sh start, followed by ./configure, and setting whatever options you wish to use. It is always safe to re-run the ./configure script at any time - it will never leave your configuration in an inconsistent state. The machine/OS combination is always detected first so you can't re-use the wrong machine configuration by mistake, and although previous options for a particular machine are cached, they are always reported, and can be always overridden on the command line.
Then, do a make with whatever targets you are interested in: make help will give you a list of the common ones. For instance, make hat gives you everything, but make hat-tools gives you just the browsing tools.
Tracking changes in the central repository
The log messages of all accepted darcs patches are currently sent to the mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to see who is making changes, why, and and what they say about them, please do join this list - see http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo for further details.
Core developers - write-access to the central repository
Core developers of hat have write-access to the central darcs repository. All you need is an account on the machine darcs.haskell.org.
All the other instructions are the same.
To obtain write-access to darcs.haskell.org, you need to ask the haskell.org maintainers - Simon Marlow <email@example.com> or Isaac Jones <firstname.lastname@example.org> - for an account.
