Detailed Description

Stackage LTS 11 was released in March, it unlocks newer versions of a number of import Haskell libraries and other packages. GHC and its core libraries remain unchanged compared to LTS 10, so only about half the packages will need to be rebuild (about 200 version bumps and their reverse dependencies).

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora users will have a newer version of Haskell Stackage LTS packages to use and develop on.

Scope

  • Proposal owners:
    • Bump the affected Haskell packages from LTS 10 to LTS 11 using cabal-rpm, rpmbuild-order and fedora-haskell-tools
    • Build them and their reverse dependencies for Rawhide (using f29-ghc sidetag to avoid disruption)
    • Push the builds to Rawhide
    • Verify the dependencies are consistent
  • Other developers: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
  • Release engineering: [1] (a check of an impact with Release Engineering is needed)
  • Policies and guidelines: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
  • Trademark approval: N/A (not needed for this Change)
