Guillaume Hoffmann <guillaumh at gmail.com> added the comment:

I don't recall we committed to supporting only the package versions
provided by HP ( http://darcs.net/Development/Policy ). If all
dependencies are cabal-installable it should be ok no?

But indeed the current (and previous) HP provides only
containers- [1], whereas containers- was released more
than one year ago [2]. Same issue with hashable (HP provides, we
require 1.2).

Worse, some dependencies of darcs are not provided at all by HP:
haskeline, cryptohash, base16-bytestring, hashed-storage, tar, data-ordlist.

Next HP is scheduled for November 2013 [3]. I'm not familiar with the
process, maybe we can ask or vote for new versions of hashable and
