I don't believe there is any software yet, that's what's holding the
project back. If someone wanted to build a "darcshub" project for happs
I would bet Eric would be thrilled to try running it.
On the other hand, it might be better to make use of existing repository
browsers like Trac+darcs or Darcsweb... I've been working on my own
open source repository hosting software for years ("Darcsforge" )
which is planned to be nearly a full stack for darcs repository hosting;
only it's not finished yet or really ready for prime time, but its open
source and I'd appreciate anyone interested in contributing (it's
Python, so a bit "easier" than Haskell).
 Somewhat Trac-like, but more modular and built around Darcs from the
start, written as a set of Django applications.
(Including some new documentation just written and posted today!)
