Mission

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

Communication

Mailing list

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

IRC

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

Haskell Platform support

Haskell Platform in Fedora status:

  • F14 supports haskell-platform-2010.2.0.0 (ghc-6.12.3)
  • F13 supports haskell-platform-2010.1.0.0 (ghc-6.12.1)
  • F12 supports haskell-platform-2009.2.0.2 (ghc-6.10.4)
  • F11 supported haskell-platform-2009.2.0.1 (ghc-6.10.3)
  • EPEL 6 Beta has ghc-6.12.3 and haskell-platform-2010.2.0.0
  • EPEL 5 has ghc-6.10.4
  • EPEL 4 has ghc-6.8.3

Tasks

  • update PackagingDrafts/Haskell to latest macros/packaging
  • add requires/provides rpm scripts for package hashs
  • F14 docsbeat
  • 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
  • Add %check sections for packages that have tests available

Packaging

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.
