1 Overview

The names in the domain point to three machines:


This machine responds to the names,,, It's at Yale university.

MRTG: All network traffic.

1.2 monk

This machine responds to the names,,,, It's run by Galois.

MRTG: All network traffic, External network bandwidth, Free disk space, System load, Free memory, Free swap, All of the daily graphs.
Analog: cvs/darcs, hackage.

1.3 nun

This machine responds to the names,,,,,, See this message.

MRTG: All network traffic, Free disk space, System load, Free memory, Free swap, All of the daily graphs.

2 Relation between the services

I'm wondering what the relationship is (if any) between and hosts ghc, the core libs and many others. The server is maintained by Galois. Because it hosts the most central bits of the haskell platform, security is fairly tight and getting an account there is hard. There are very few community members with root privileges. was created precisely to provide hosting to the wider community. It is hosted commercially, paid for by's Google Summer of Code funds. We have several community admins with root privileges.

Should my projects be hosted at darcs or code? It's easy to get an account there via the web submission system:

Is one more blessed/preferred over the other for community projects?

Yes, is preferred.

If my project is currently on darcs, should I migrate to code?

You can if you like, there is no need to do so however. Accounts on are not going to be revoked as far as I know. The community server is an addition, not a replacement.

If I have an account on darcs, will it work on code, or do I need to get a new account on code?

They are totally separate systems.
