The mission of the Haskell Special Interest Group is to maintain, grow, and guide the packaging of Haskell projects in Fedora.
We have two mailing-lists:
We have anchannel on freenode.net .

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
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)
If you're looking for newer versions of ghc etc you can try the following coprs:
- https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/petersen/ghc-8.4.3/ (*)
- https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/petersen/ghc-8.2.2/ (*)
- https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/petersen/ghc-8.0.2/ (*)
- https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/petersen/ghc-7.10.3/ (*)
- https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/petersen/ghc-7.8.4/ (*)
- https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/petersen/pandoc/ (also pandoc-el5)
- https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/petersen/cabal-install/ (note the above ghc repos already include cabal-install)
(*) 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
- document ghc and package update workflow (GHC_Update_SOP)
- package larger subset of LTS in Copr
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
email@example.com the CC list for your review request bug.
- You can use
cabal-rpm diffwhen 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).
(Previously we tracked package review requests CC to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Open haskell-devel package reviews which are split into
- New unassigned reviews (bit.ly/fedora-haskell-new-reviews2)
- Ongoing assigned reviews
- NotReady stalled reviews
Non-review bugs can be split into:
- All open URM bugs (saved as haskell-available)
- Package bugs
- Tracker for libraries with no revdeps
- ghc bugs not CC haskell-sig
See also the package review links in the Packaging section.
