Ideas/DarcsLibrary

The vision

  • Library design bugs on the tracker

  • Using the repo-level library should be safe. No repo-level operation should make a consistent repository inconsistent
  • Implementing a Darcs GUI with cherry-picking should be possible
  • Split into three components?

    • core
    • repo
    • commands
  • Type witnesses work complete

Innards

  • separation of business IO from UI IO - issue1483
