Mission

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

Communication

Mailing lists

We have two mailing-lists:

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

Haskell Platform support

Haskell Platform in Fedora status:

  • Next releases:
    • F18 is going to ship ghc-7.4 with haskell-platform-2012.2
  • Current releases:
    • F17 has haskell-platform-2011.4.0.0 with ghc-7.0.4
    • F16 has haskell-platform-2011.2.0.1 with ghc-7.0.4
    • F15 has haskell-platform-2011.2.0.0 with ghc-7.0.2
  • EPEL
    • EPEL6 has haskell-platform-2010.2.0.0 with ghc-6.12.3 (haskell-platform-2011.4 and ghc-7.0.4 in epel-testing)
    • EPEL5 has ghc-6.10.4
    • EPEL4 has ghc-6.8.3
  • Former releases
    • F14 had haskell-platform-2010.2.0.0 with ghc-6.12.3
    • F13 had haskell-platform-2010.1.0.0 with ghc-6.12.1
    • F12 had haskell-platform-2009.2.0.2 with ghc-6.10.4
    • F11 had haskell-platform-2009.2.0.1 with ghc-6.10.3

See also the current Haskell Platform release schedule.

Tasks

  • Update draft packaging guidelines for Haskell to the latest cabal2spec-0.25 templates
  • Features/GHC74 for F18
  • add haskell-platform packages to Upstream_release_monitoring#Package_Ignore_List
  • Haskell_Spin submit to Spins SIG
  • docsbeat
  • 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 [1].
    • Koji supports maven now. It could have support for cabal as well.
