    1111==== Ben (benl23) -- updated 4th Feb 2010  ==== 
    12  * DDC has reached a stage where can reasonably be expected to compile programs, but the compiler itself is very slow and there are lots of bugs. I'm currently refactoring the representation of types (in Type.Exp) to use a Data.Map to hold type constraints instead of a flat list. Along the way I'm redoing some of the more naive parts of the type inferencer, which should result in a major performance improvement. Once the representation of types has stabilised I'll be able to see about checking #2 (checking the types of instance functions against their definitions) which is a major cause of confusing panic messages.

    1414 * I'm also fixing up the buildbots and testing framework. I've acquired an Intel Core2 Duo/3GB laptop {{{(discus.ouroborus.net)}}} which is now our dedicated build server.

     16 * I've registered the domain {{{ouroborus.net}}} as a permanent home for DDC related things. This page can be reached via {{{ddc.ouroborus.net}}}, and the build server is {{{discus.ouroborus.net}}}. This should help avoid breakage when we need to relocate the servers. I should probably move the wiki pages hosted on www.haskell.org to this trac site to keep everything together.
