Description:
This is a port of John Goerzen's convertible package,
intended to distinguish between conversions which are
guaranteed to succeed and those which might fail. It uses the
attempt package, which in turn uses the failure package, so
that this package is fully compatible with the failure
framework.

Comment 2 Narasimhan 2011-01-22 05:17:40 UTC
An email has been sent to the author and maintainer of the convertible-text package seeking clarification of the licensing of the package and requesting a missing file to be added.

Comment 5 Narasimhan 2011-01-29 05:48:07 UTC
Awaiting email confirmation from the previous author of the package regarding license change.

Comment 6 Narasimhan 2011-01-31 05:01:42 UTC
Mail confirmation received from John Goerzen <jgoerzen@complete.org> and Michael Snoyman <michael@snoyman.com> confirming the license change from LGPL to BSD.

Comment 7 Narasimhan 2011-03-06 01:01:01 UTC
Can you update the package with a patch containing the email from Michael? Thanks.

Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2011-06-22 01:24:28 UTC
(Just noting that object-data-json is no longer needed by authenticate.)

But data-object-yaml is needed by yesod-core anyway (and hledger-web).

Missing dependency on old-time:

(In reply to comment #11)
> http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=3993339

Setup: At least the following dependencies are missing:
old-time >=1.0.0.2 && <1.1

Erm, sorry, I guess the old-time in ghc-7.4.1 is too new.
Maybe you can check if allowing 1.1 builds ok?

Comment 13 Narasimhan 2012-06-03 13:34:07 UTC
@Ben,
I can review this. Could you update the package as per comment 12?

Comment 14 Jens Petersen 2012-07-10 07:41:41 UTC
yesod-core-0.10 no longer needs data-object-yaml and
same for hledger-web-0.18, so I think this review can be
dropped/deferred for now.

Comment 15 Ben Boeckel 2012-07-21 02:01:31 UTC
This is marked as obsolete on Hackage. Closing.
