From Fedora Project Wiki

Revision as of 20:39, 5 September 2010 by Mathstuf (talk | contribs) (Package Wishlist: Add link to yesod RR dep tree)


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


Mailing list

We have a mailing-list haskell-devel (archives), since Feb 2008.


We have an IRC channel #fedora-haskell on Freenode.

Haskell Platform support

Haskell Platform in Fedora status:

  • F11 supported 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 in development will ship haskell-platform-2010.2.0.0 (ghc-6.12.3)


  • 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.

Package reviews

You can use cabal2spec-diff when reviewing packages to check differences from the templates.
