Benefit to Fedora

Fedora will benefit by providing the latest ghc compiler and haskell-platform to its users with various bugfixes.

Scope

  • Rebuilding all Haskell packages.

How to Test

  • yum install @haskell
  • yum install xmonad
  • yum install ghc-*-devel
  • yum install pandoc

User Experience

Developers will be able to use latest GHC.

Dependencies

haskell-platform release for ghc-7.0.4 expected.

Contingency Plan

ghc-7.0.4 is a stable bugfix release, which should not have any major surprises.

If haskell-platform-2011.2.0.2 is not released in time we will ship with haskell-platform-2011.2.0.1 + ghc-7.0.4, and update haskell-platform later if necessary.
