Ticket #3370 (closed proposal: fixed)
Put DiffArray in its own diffarray package
|Reported by:||igloo||Owned by:||igloo|
|Type of failure:||Difficulty:||Unknown|
|Test Case:||Blocked By:|
DiffArray currently has serious performance problems (see #2727), and is not currently being actively maintained. However, as part of the corelib array it gives the impression that it is a "blessed" library.
I propose that we split DiffArray off into its own diffarray package. This also has the advantage that it can then be maintained by a separate maintainer, if someone is interested, and it will be decoupled from GHC's major release schedule.
Deadline: 26 July (2 weeks).
