Some questions about building git-annex with stack:

  • What are the pros/cons of setting the new flags HttpClientRestricted and GitLfs to True/False?

  • extra-deps in stack.yaml specifies specific package versions, some of which are older than the latest ones on Hackage. I find myself needing to patch some of these extra-deps to later ones; these still seem to meet the git-annex.cabal constraints, but I wanted to check if there's a specific reason the later versions aren't used in the standard stack.yaml.
