Gitlab bug preventing reporting of GHC bug

The bug-reporting bug

I ran into a GHC bug, and was told to go to this page to report it. That one said I should go to this one to "register an account on this Trac" (which is gibberish to me). I followed the link and tried to fill it out (see below), but every time I click "create page" I am taken to a page with a big orange image of what might be a cubist fox's head, which says

Whoops, something went wrong on our end.
Try refreshing the page, or going back and attempting the action again.

todo - briefer representation of rhythmic repetition


horizontal lines|spaces = clusters of 3 chromatic steps

Any two lines or spaces congrent mod 2 represent the same three notes, modulo octave. Lines|spaces congrunet to 0 mod 4 are darker, to clarify the two-octave relationship.

vertical lines = centers of contemporaneity

For each group of simultaneous notes, a thin vertical line is drawn. Notes can be placed on that line, or immediately left or right of it.

pitch depends on horizontal and vertical position

Given any two adjacent, vertically aligned notes, the higher on the page is 3 chromatic steps higher in frequency. Given any two contemporaneous, adjacent, horizontally aligned notes, the farther right on the page is 1 chromatic step higher.

can't stack init the Haddock repo
View stack-init-for-haddock.txt
# First, following the instructions here:
# I ran these commands:
# git clone
# cd haddock
# After that, `stack init` would not work.
# I responded by running `stack update` and `stack upgrade`.
# Now my version of Stack is this:
# Version 1.9.3, Git revision 40cf7b37526b86d1676da82167ea8758a854953b (6211 commits) x86_64 hpack-0.31.1

SuperCollider: cmake does not see Jack
View CMakeOutput.log
# This file was created when I tried running 'cmake ..' from supercollider/build,
# in the course of trying to install SuperCollider from source. It's weird,
# because jack tells me I have jack installed, specifically jack 2:
# jeff@jeff-Inspiron-5567:~/installs/supercollider/build$ jackd -V
# jackdmp version 1.9.12 tmpdir /dev/shm protocol 8
# (According to this[1], Jack 1 version numbers start with a 0;
# Jack 2 version numbers start with a 1.)
