     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.
