my results trying to run the new release candidate are as follows:

  Operating system: Linux Mint 18.3 (based on Ubuntu 16.04)
  Hardware platform: x86-64
  C Compiler: GCC 9.2.0
  Installation works?: yes
  Tests work?: yes
  Installation of eggs works?: partially

The list of successfully installed eggs is attached. I ran into trouble
with two of my own eggs:

- iup installs only partially. It looks like the modules forms in the
egg descriptor are no longer additive, which breaks the conditional
compilation logic and leads to missing import libraries. I'm not sure
if this is intentional, but it is annoying and I have no idea how to
circumvent it.

- elliptic-curves installs, but doesn't work. The code uses matchable
to destructure record instances and none of those statements match any
of the records, possibly because the record tag symbols are now
prefixed with the declaring module name. However, simply adding the
module-prefix#... to each of the match statements doesn't fix the
problem either.


Any large-scale human cooperation — whether a modern state, a medieval
church, an ancient city or an archaic tribe — is rooted in common myths
that exist only in people's collective imagination.
