glad to hear that.

It seems that implict also provides a Haskell API, to be used
programmatically. This means that it will be involved in the Haskell ABI
system and therefore should probably be maintained along the other
Haskell packages.

So I suggest it should be co-maintained by the DHG together with you: We
make sure that it builds and that it is rebuilt when its dependencies
change etc.; you are responsible for all the other maintenance duties
(replying to bug reports, curating package description and manpages,
letting us know if a new version should be uploaded etc.). How does that

BTW, are you sure this is a healthy project? Last release was in January
2013, last commit 10 years ago, recent bug reports are not replied to.
These are typical signs of an abandoned project...
