The mission of the Haskell Special Interest Group is to encourage, grow and guide the packaging of Haskell projects in Fedora.
We have an IRC channel #fedora-haskell on Freenode.
Haskell Platform support
Haskell Platform in Fedora status:
- F11 supports haskell-platform-2009.2.0.1 (ghc-6.10.3)
- F12 supports haskell-platform-2009.2.0.2 (ghc-6.10.4)
- F13 supports haskell-platform-2010.1.0.0 (ghc-6.12.1)
F14 currently in development has ghc-6.12.3 and will ship with haskell-platform-2010.2.0.0.
- update PackagingDrafts/Haskell to latest macros/packaging
- F14 docsbeat
- finish rebuilds to merge -doc into -devel
- build ghc for EPEL-6
- new mailing-list discussion separate to bugzilla mails
- move cabal2spec package to haskell branch
- port cabal2arch features to cabal2spec
- cabal/yum integration (cabal-autopkg)
- autogeneration of packages for a "testing" repository of all-of-hackage. Pull from this (with a human eye) to make Fedora packages.
- Haskell_Spin submitted to Spins SIG
Please use the latest cabal2spec package from rawhide or koji when submitting packages.
The current Haskell Packaging Guidelines need updating to ghc-6.12. cabal2spec generates .spec files from cabal packages using up to date templates. After a package has been accepted please remember to include
haskell-sig in the package SCM admin request.
You can use cabal2spec-diff when reviewing packages to check differences from the templates.
Open Package reviews (CC fedora-haskell-list)
Closed Package reviews (CC fedora-haskell-list)
- gtk and pango (to replace gtk2hs)
- pandoc (requires zip-archive)
