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:

IRC

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

Package versions

GHC and Stackage LTS versions

  • F30 has ghc-8.4.4 and package versions based on Stackage LTS 12
  • F29 has ghc-8.2.2 and package versions based on Stackage LTS 11
  • F28 has ghc-8.2.2 and package versions based on Stackage LTS 10
  • EPEL7 has ghc-7.6.3 and haskell-platform-2013.2.0.0
  • EPEL6 has ghc-7.0.4 and haskell-platform-2011.4.0.0
  • EPEL5 has ghc-7.0.4

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 (alpha in testing)

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

Tasks

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

Packaging

New Package Process

  • Please use cabal-rpm to generate packages for submitting a package review request.
    • It should follow the current Haskell Packaging Guidelines.
    • Please add haskell-devel@lists.fedoraproject.org to the CC list for your review request bug.
  • You can use cabal-rpm diff when reviewing packages to check differences from the templates.
  • New packages can optionally be added to https://release-monitoring.org/ to track Stackage (or Hackage if not in Stackage).
