[leafnode-list] HEADS UP: leafnode-2 DARCS repository change


I've finally managed to make the minimal edit required to make the
leafnode-2 DARCS repository consistent again, it had been somewhat
broken for the past 13 months - not a major issue, but still annoying.

The repository was broken because this change:

| Mon Mar 21 22:51:03 CET 2005  Matthias Andree <matthias.andree@xxxxxx>
|   * Unrecord auto-generated file.
|   R ./Makefile.in

removed the nonexistent Makefile.in again.

Run "darcs check --complete" to find out if your repository
is corrupted. If your repo is fine, you should get the line "The
repository is consistent!". If it is broken, you'll see something like
"Unapplicable patch:... darcs: ./Makefile.in: removeFile: does not exist
(No such file or directory)"

If repository is corrupted, save your changes ("darcs whatsnew -ls"
should print which files you need to save), then rename the directory to
leafnode-2-broken and get leafnode-2 from upstream again:

    darcs get --partial \
    http://home.pages.de/~mandree/leafnode/beta/darcs/ leafnode-2-darcs

Then re-apply your saved patches, run "darcs check", then build and see
if everything is fine.

Finally, migrate your _darcs/prefs/* from the old directory.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but the repo had to be fixed some day.

Kind regards,
