wmoss commented Dec 7, 2012

Updates to allow for newer versions of various dependent packages. Also built with 7.6.1.

TomMD commented Dec 17, 2012

I had already written a version of your commit 03443bd, but the maintainer is somewhat lax in getting to pull requests. I think someone in the community would need to make a fork if they want things moving in a timely fashion.

wmoss commented Dec 19, 2012

@TomMD, I saw that after I wrote it (I need to start looking at the forks before I make my own fixes). I tried harassing people in IRC, but their channel is pretty much dead. There's nothing stopping someone from updating Hackage (there's not actually a permissions system there). Maybe I'll do that if I don't here back soon.


kuenishi commented Dec 20, 2012

@wmoss do you have enough time to maintain? I'll ask @frsyuki to add you to the manager of this repository.



kuenishi commented Dec 20, 2012

And, msgpackers are usually working on twitter, sorry for not being at IRC :'(


frsyuki commented Dec 20, 2012

@TomMD @wmoss
It's really great if you guys could join the msgpack-haskell team! Are you two interested in joining the team?
I contacted @tanakh who is the current maintainer of msgpack-haskell. But he looks inactive unfortunately.
But I guess we need his response to release a new version (with the same package name). Let me take time for his response.

wmoss commented Dec 20, 2012

@frsyuki, sure, I'd be happy to.

wmoss commented Jan 4, 2013

@frsyuki, @tanakh, any update here? Would be great to keep this package up to date.


frsyuki commented Jan 4, 2013

@wmoss sorry for being late. I'm in trouble to get a reply from him...So I asked @nobu-k (who is a maintainer of msgpack-cpp and a coworker of @tanakh) to get reply physically. But unfortunately it will be January 7th (at least) because of his vacation.
Sometimes this kind of things happen...(I had similar problems with msgpack-php and msgpack-node).

wmoss commented Jan 4, 2013

No problem. I just wanted to check in since I had not heard in a while. Thanks!

There is no need to restrict bytestring-0.9.*, isn't it ?

I think bytestring dependency must be ">=0.9 && < 0.11" for haskell-platform-2012.4.0.0(latest) environment.


wmoss Jan 22, 2013

That may be true, but Hackage lists the 0.9 series as having been built on 7.4, not 7.6.


kuenishi commented Jan 30, 2013

Added @wmoss to Haskell masters. Go for it! (Still I don't know how to work with HackageDB)
