The mission of the Haskell Special Interest Group is to maintain, grow, and guide the packaging of Haskell projects in Fedora.
We have two mailing-lists:
- haskell list (archives) for general discussion [new!]
- haskell-devel (archives) for bugzilla traffic.
We have an IRC channel #fedora-haskell on Freenode.
Follow us on Twitter.

See also the current Haskell Platform release schedule.
- Update draft packaging guidelines for Haskell to the latest cabal2spec-0.25 templates
- submit updated PackagingDrafts/Haskell to FPC
- Features/GHC74 for F18
- add haskell-platform packages to Upstream_release_monitoring#Package_Ignore_List
- Haskell_Spin submit to Spins SIG
- port cabal2spec package to haskell
- Add %check sections for packages that have tests available
- cabal/yum integration (cabal-rpm)
- autogeneration of packages for a "testing" repository of all-of-hackage. Pull from this (with a human eye) to make Fedora packages.
- A tool to check for dependency breakage for version updates in repo: packdeps/reverse and cblrepo exist
- A tool to do automatic rebuild. Try to do it in koji or mock-build with a shell script or haskell script.
- Automatically updated package dependency graph.
- Need to have continuous build integration, eg automate dependency builds. Check reverse .
- Koji supports maven now. It could have support for cabal as well.
New Package Process
- Please use the latest cabal2spec package when submitting a package review request.
- You can use cabal2spec-diff when reviewing packages to check differences from the templates.
- Please include haskell-sig in the InitialCC field of Package_SCM_admin_requests.
- Remember to add new packages to Upstream_release_monitoring (Note that packages in haskell-platform are intentionally not listed to avoid accidental breakage.)
All open haskell-devel package reviews which can be split into:
- New Ready reviews (all Ready reviews)
- Other pending or new reviews (not containing "Ready" in Whiteboard] (8)
- NotReady reviews (40)
- Haskell-pkg-reviews dependency tree
- "ghc" or "haskell" reviews not CC haskell-sig
(Stats last updated 10 May 2012)
Non-review bugs, which can be split into:
- Ready Upstream Release Monitoring bugs (URM)
- Blocked Upstream Release Monitoring bugs (URM)
- Other misc bugs
- Tracker for libraries with no revdeps
