Subject: cabal-install: Does not support ~ in paths in .cabal/config
Date: Fri, 02 Apr 2010 12:41:10 -0700
Package: cabal-install
Version: 0.8.0-1
Severity: normal

Paths in ~/.cabal/config don't seem to support ~ or any other means of
specifying $HOME.  This makes it difficult to specify paths like prefix,
build-summary, and remote-repo-cache in a non-system-specific way.
