<ng0>i have 3 different versions of ghc-directory I'd need to add .. that's doable, but maybe I can avoid it?
<ng0>i'll work on this patchset and i will feel very sorry and thankful for the reviewer.. by the list of versions I need to add it will grow from 41 commits to about 50 i think
<efraim>these are declared versiioned dependancies or will it work with a later version?
<ng0>the packages themselves build. only darcs pointed this out that $package depends on $package-version etc.. and darcs gave me a build error i do not understand, so i started to fix the dependencies.
<ng0>that is not the error darcs build gave me, but before build start i get multiple occurences of information output in this style: package graphviz-29126.96.36.199 requires directory-188.8.131.52
<ng0>i can leave it like that and post the patchset, andthe final error output so someone with more haskell debugging knowledge could tell me what's going on
<ng0>okay i read the error again.. the specific versions are really required.
<ng0>or maybe I need to version bump ghc-transformers-* ... i'll see
<brendyn> rekado | brendyn: the substitute for texlive-texmf has been disabled in hydra.
<brendyn>I see, it appears it is a .xz file but it was decompressed with bzip2
<ng0>2016-09-04 17:21 <brendyn> Do we intend to package things like Firefox extensions or is that something that's better left to the browser? that would be an interesting thought I had this year too, but currently there's just icecat.
<jmd>Your previous comment would seem to have vindicated my point of view.
<lfam>In general, I think another problem is that, sometimes, patch submitters don't pay close enough attention to the result of their submissions
<lfam>In this case, the change was not noticed for two months
<darkpsi>@wingo thanks for you help and being willing to answer my dumb questions
<brendyn>What's the difference between [regexp] and [pattern] ?
<lfam>Too bad there are no IRC logs for those days. I will try looking in my backups
<jmd>lfam: Just this week, in another project, I was about to delete a line of code, which didn't make any sense to me at all. But I did a quick "git blame" to find the commit which added it, and then a "git show" and luckily the commit message told me exactly why it had been added. Removing it would have caused problems.
<rekado>brendyn: texlive is needed by some packages that build documentation.
<rekado>it will be downloaded when one of these packages needs to be built from source.
<lfam>I actually don't think we are bandwith-limited, yet. At least, I haven't heard of that being a problem.
<brendyn>IPFS/torrent type solutions allow downloading from multiple sources at once
<ng0>no, it is different brendyn. on status: stage 0 nearing completion.. which means: almost working basic gnunet-service (assumed to be working, i need to test it), working with upstream on debugging gnunet new release.
<lfam>Previously, hydra.gnu.org was hosted on a very resource-constrained VM with abysmal I/O performance
<brendyn>Personally my entire country has cray bandwidth
<lfam>Something about that system made it basically impossible for us to serve the source and substitutes of texlive-texmf, which are each several gigabytes
<jmd>brendyn: Texlive takes about 14 mins to download here.
<ng0>brendyn, i need to move my work in progress to something people can checkout.. currently it is spread across several repositories
***lumidify_ is now known as lumidify
<brendyn>I think people who haven't lived with shitty internet just don't understand this so well. Crappy internet doesn't obey normal logic. If I download the same file from 10 different sources at once, often it will go faster
<ng0>jmd, texlive download here takes 2-3 hours usually
<brendyn>What I'd also like is, for example If I have a computer lab with 30 computers, they can share files with each other like everything was on IPFS
<brendyn>jmd: I pay like 60 dollars a month for a 25Mbit/s connection and in reality I get about 3Mbitb/s.
<jmd>Yeah. Unfortunately that is not an uncommon story.
<lfam>How much do they charge for a nominally 3Mbit/s connection? ;)
<brendyn>Lets see. My University is about 100m down the road and I'm on fibre optic. Downloading a Fedora iso via ssh from the University's super computer gets me ~800KiB/s = 6.4Mib/s. That's the best I can do.
<snape>is it possible that git send-email is not packaged for guix ?
