    100 There are no branches currently; we will use CVS for the 6.4 branch until its end of life, and use darcs for future branches.

    136133You need to have {{{testsuite}}} checked out, of course.  Running {{{make fast}}} should only take a few minutes.

     135== The 6.6 branch == 
     136 
     137There is a branch, for the 6.6 series of GHC releases, of the repositories for 
     138ghc, testsuite, nofib and the core libraries in the 
     139||http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc-6.6|| 
     140subtree. 
     141 
     142To use this branch instead of the HEAD, replace the first command in the instructions above with 
     143{{{ 
     144  $ darcs get --partial http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc-6.6/ghc 
     145}}} 
     146and use 
     147{{{ 
     148  $ darcs get --partial http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc-6.6/testsuite 
     149  $ darcs get --partial http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc-6.6/nofib 
     150}}} 
     151to get the testsuite and nofib. Otherwise, the commands needed are identical to those for 
     152working with the HEAD.
