News and discussions
1. Darcs fundraising is already halfway! We have gathered more than
   $500 on our objective of $1000 to help developers attend the
   upcoming Haskell Hackaton. Spread the word!

2. Support for libwww and curl/wget dropped, darcs now relies only on
   libcurl or on the Haskell HTTP module:
