From Fedora Project Wiki


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


Mailing lists

We have two mailing-lists:


We have an #fedora-haskell[?] channel on .

GHC modules

The following module streams are currently available for current Fedora releases:

  • ghc:8.4 (8.4.4)
  • ghc:8.6 (8.6.5)
  • ghc:8.8 (rc)

Haskell Coprs

If you're looking for newer versions of ghc etc you can try the following coprs:

(*) if you have Fedora Haskell libraries installed which are not part of ghc, you will need to remove them all first (easiest just to remove ghc-base) to avoid package dependency conflicts


  • ghc-8.6.5 and LTS 13 for Fedora 31
  • add cabal-install to module streams
  • help improve FedoraReview/plugins/
  • docsbeat
  • document ghc and package update workflow (GHC_Update_SOP)
  • package larger subset of LTS in Copr
