Using the GHC darcs repository

There are several darcs repositories related to GHC: main GHC repository libraries test suite benchmark suite

Additionally, we have the following branches: branch of GHC branch of the libraries

A source tree consists of the GHC repository, with libraries as a sub-directory:

  $ darcs get --partial
  $ cd ghc
  $ darcs get --partial

NOTE: you really want --partial, at least when grabbing GHC. There are some 13000 patches in the repository, which take a long time to download without --partial.

Optionally, you might want to grab the testsuite and benchmark suite too, which should also be sub-directories of ghc:

  $ darcs get --partial
  $ darcs get --partial

To submit patches to the developers, please use darcs send.
