There is also a well-maintained git mirror with several clones:
it isn't darcs, but then again (iiuc, could be wrong) ghc itself is
going to git for performance reasons. Gitorious is nice as it makes it
really easy to set up clones and trade commits.
Different topic: I recently started playing with the erlang distributed
database 'mnesia' which has a really, really nice database DSEL based on
list comprehensions. I'm very impressed. It looks like one could put
something like this together with proto. You might check it out for
