Ticket #674 (new enhancement)
Findable extra documentation
|Reported by:||jbapple||Owned by:|
I have a cabal package that should include extra documentation in the distribution. This documentation should not be written in Haddock.
1. There should be a field for this analogous to data-files or extra-source-files. The former is too much: the files do not need to be accessed by any Haskell runtime. The latter is not enough: it does not store the extracted files on the system on which the package is installed.
2. There should be a way for humans to find these files without loading up a GHC runtime or using Unix's "find". I suggest "cabal list" also shows, for installed packages with extra data or documentation files installed, where these files can be found.
