I noticed that gitit now depends on pandoc-citeproc, which contains a copy of citeproc-hs. In Debian, such code copies are usually not acceptable.
What is the reason for the code copy, and is there a tickets tracking its proper solution?
How unfortunate. Is there a chance to merge the two projects again?
Further note: Even if the parts of the code that originated in citeproc-hs are merged back into citeproc-hs, the pandoc-citeproc package will still be needed. It contains code that bridges pandoc and citeproc-hs, including the code for the JSON filter pandoc-citeproc and the conversion utility biblio2yaml.
Ok, that is useful information, and it was not clear from me from a quick reading of the description.
What about citeproc-hs’s tricky requirements of data files required at runtime – do they also hold for pandoc-citeproc?
Nevertheless, is there a bug report against citeproc-hs about the changes you need to be have merged?
Ok, thanks for the clarification.
I have not heard from Andrea for a year and a half. citeproc-hs seems a dead project, so I think we can close this.
