The mission of the Haskell Special Interest Group is to maintain, grow, and guide the packaging of Haskell projects in Fedora.


Mailing lists

We have two mailing-lists:


We have an #fedora-haskell[?] channel on .

Haskell Platform support

  • F20 has haskell-platform-2013.2.0.0 with ghc-7.6.3
  • F19 has haskell-platform-2012.4.0.0 with ghc-7.4.2
  • F18 has haskell-platform-2012.2.0.0 with ghc-7.4.1
  • EPEL6 has haskell-platform-2011.4.0.0 and ghc-7.0.4
  • EPEL5 has ghc-6.12.3

Please see the Haskell Platform page for more information about Fedora's Haskell Platform support. Detailed package information can be found on the Fedora Packages page.


  • Changes/YesodWebFramework
  • docsbeat
  • update GHC_Update_SOP when bootstrapping ghc-7.8
  • fedora-review haskell plugin
  • submit Haskell_Spin to Spins SIG?
  • repoquery wrapper for (reverse-)dependencies
  • cabal-rpm: recursive support
  • automate rebuilds in koji or mock-build (see rebuild scripts in haskell-sig.git)
  • Add %check sections for packages that have tests available
  • Better tool to check for dependency breakage for version updates: packdeps reverse and cblrepo exist
  • Automatically updated package dependency graphs.
  • Continuous build integration to automate build testing (see upstream stackage project)
  • Koji supports maven now. It could have support for cabal as well.


New Package Process

Package reviews

Open haskell-devel package reviews can be split by Whiteboard into:

Other links:


Non-review bugs can be split into:

All open Haskell bugs

See also the package review links in the Packaging section.

Current packages in Fedora

Haskell SIG packages in pkgdb

See package interdependencies for dependency graphs.
