The wiki recommends this in order to enable the cache:
mkdir -p $HOME/.darcs/cache
echo cache:$HOME/.darcs/cache > $HOME/.darcs/sources
However I found that by just creating the cache directory it is populated with
files as I use darcs. Files in the cache are even hardlinked with files in the
repositories. A darcs show repo also shows that the repo uses the cache:
$ darcs show repo
Cache: thisrepo:/home/dan/project, cache:/home/dan/.darcs/cache
Num Patches: 1690
My question is if the "echo cache:$HOME/.darcs/cache > $HOME/.darcs/sources"
is still needed or is it something obsolete? If it's still needed what is its
purpose and why does my cache get populated and used even without it?
