Please describe the problem.

The version of git-annex available on OpenBSD is quite old. I've tried building a more recent version with cabal install git-annex, but this also failed. I guess these tools are also rather old. Unfortunately I have zero experience with Haskell and only mediocre OpenBSD skills. I'm hoping someone can pick this up and build a more up-to-date version.

  • git-annex-8.20210223p1
  • cabal-install-
  • ghc-8.10.6p0

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

I've used it extensively during my time at university to keep track of materials and assignments. It ever let me down. Unfortunately I later lost the data due to multiple corrupted external disks and backup drives with LUKS where I didn't remember the password. Luckily I had no use for it anymore anyway. I'm hoping to use it again, this time in an effort to disconnect.
