Haskell Coprs

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

(*) if you have Fedora non-ghc Haskell libraries installed, you will need to remove them all (easiest just to remove ghc-base) in order to install


  • Changes/GHC_8.0 for F26 [completed]
  • document Fedora Haskell containers
  • help improve FedoraReview/plugins/
  • docsbeat

New Package Process

Package reviews

We track package review requests that are CC

Open haskell-devel package reviews which are split into
