Create project with different cabal-dev location #65

Is it currently possible to point a project/session to a cabal-dev directory that is different to that which contains the project.cabal file? (And is it even a good idea to do this)

I'm hacking on a project (distributed-process) which contains multiple dependent projects in the same tree:

tree -L 1 ..
├── benchmarks
├── cabal-dev
├── distributed-process
├── doc
├── examples
├── network-transport
├── network-transport-pipes
├── network-transport-zmq

My project is network-transport-zmq which contains the .cabal file but I'd like to use the cabal-dev in the parent directory.

  1. Can I do it?
  2. Should I do it?

If cabal-dev is happy with it then you should be OK, I think. Otherwise I'd just launch a session for each sub project.
