For what it's worth, you can just copy an entire repo around using normal 
filesystem operations, if you want to get it into exact sync. That would 
also clobber things like repo settings and posthooks though.

The Xtract: Ran out of input message comes from your posthook, and is 
presumably triggered by the previous error from darcs. My best guess from 
the output and from reading the posthook script on code.haskell.org is 
that the error from darcs also comes from that script, so the script 
itself is buggy/out of date in some way, but the actual initial darcs 
operation was fine as indicated by "Push successful".

Do a 'darcs check' on the code.haskell repo just to be sure, but I think 
it's fine.
