[Fedora-haskell-list] cblrepo tool

Recently I discovered cblrepo by Magnus Therning in hackage:

It is a small tool which can maintain a little "database"
of versioned cabal package dependencies.  This way it should be
easy to check if updating a library to a new version
will break anything, etc.

So I setup a cblrepo.db file for Fedora 15 in haskell-sig.git:
and will be adding files also for f14 and f16 soon.

Please make use of them when considering whether to update a haskell library.

I would like to make cblrepo ghc-pkg aware but that is some work.
Currently bootstrapping the db file is done with hacky script.
