[edit] Scope

  • Rebuilding all Haskell packages.

[edit] Contingency Plan

ghc-7.0.4 is a stable bugfix release, which should not have any major surprises.

If haskell-platform-2011.2.0.2 is not released in time we will ship with haskell-platform-2011.2.0.1 + ghc-7.0.4, and update haskell-platform later if necessary.
