Metadata revisions for HTTP-4000.3.5

Package maintainers and Hackage trustees are allowed to edit certain bits of package metadata after a release, without uploading a new tarball. Note that the tarball itself is never changed, just the metadata that is stored separately. For more information about metadata revisions, please refer to the Hackage Metadata Revisions FAQ.

    The HTTP package supports client-side web programming in Haskell. It lets you set up
    HTTP connections, transmitting requests and processing the responses coming back, all
    from within the comforts of Haskell. It's dependent on the network package to operate,
    but other than that, the implementation is all written in Haskell.
    
    A basic API for issuing single HTTP requests + receiving responses is provided. On top
    of that, a session-level abstraction is also on offer  (the @BrowserAction@ monad);
    it taking care of handling the management of persistent connections, proxies,
    state (cookies) and authentication credentials required to handle multi-step
    interactions with a web server.
    
    The representation of the bytes flowing across is extensible via the use of a type class,
    letting you pick the representation of requests and responses that best fits your use.
    Some pre-packaged, common instances are provided for you (@ByteString@, @String@).
    
    Here's an example use:
    
    >
    >    do
    >      rsp <- Network.HTTP.simpleHTTP (getRequest "http://www.haskell.org/")
    >              -- fetch document and return it (as a 'String'.)
    >      fmap (take 100) (getResponseBody rsp)
    >
    >    do
    >      (_, rsp)
    >         <- Network.Browser.browse $ do
    >               setAllowRedirects True -- handle HTTP redirects
    >               request $ getRequest "http://www.haskell.org/"
    >      return (take 100 (rspBody rsp))
