Haskell libraries and packages will be updated from Stackage LTS 13 to the new versions in Stackage LTS 14.

Current status

Detailed Description

The Haskell packages in Stackage LTS provide a consistent tested set of package versions that are known to build together. Fedora only has a small subset of the (2000+) Haskell packages in Stackage, plus a few packages only found in the upstream Hackage repository.

This Change involves updating the Fedora Haskell packages based on Stackage LTS 13 in F31 to the newer versions found in LTS 14.

There is no version change to the ghc Haskell compiler, which will remain at 8.6.5.

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora users and developers will benefit by having the latest stable set of Haskell packages available.

    • Complete all the builds and required rebuilds due to dependency bumps
  • Other developers: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
