[edit] Haskell Platform 2011.4

[edit] Summary

Bring Fedora Haskell packages up to the latest Haskell Platform release.

[edit] Detailed Description

The Haskell Platform is the official recommended set of basic libraries and tools for Haskell development.

A new stable Haskell Platform release was made in December supporting ghc-7.0.4 and updating 10 platform libraries. About 60 packages in Fedora need to be rebuilt for this.

[edit] Benefit to Fedora

Makes sure that Fedora is up-to-date with Haskell library versions so that users developing with Haskell on Fedora will have the latest stable Haskell Platform available to them.

[edit] Scope

  • Update haskell-platform library packages to the latest recommended versions. [done]
  • Rebuild reverse-dependent packages in rawhide. [done]
  • Updating other packages outside platform to latest versions. [done]
  • Testing of packages in development tree. [done]

[edit] How To Test

  • yum install haskell-platform
  • yum install @haskell
  • yum install xmonad
  • yum install ghc-*-devel
  • Testing rebuilding of some packages.
  • Test cabal install'ing some packages from Hackage.

[edit] User Experience

Fedora users will have the latest version of the Haskell Platform available to them. They will find it easier to build the latest packages from Hackage with latest platform libraries available to them.

[edit] Dependencies

None.

[edit] Contingency Plan

At this time no problems expected with this stable update.
