re: Use opaque types in Elm! VIEW POST

re: Great post. I was wondering about the use of Http.Error. Why are you using that when creating a Question, it has nothing to do with Http?

Thank you!

As I say here:

We will work with an example of what I think is a fairly common scenario: a form that validates and submits some data to create a new resource remotely.

We assume that the Question needs to be created remotely in some backend. Although I don't mention Http specifically, the most common strategy is to do this by making a request to an HTTP API.

In any case, the error type could be something entirely different. It is not relevant to understand the concepts presented in the post.
