There was a small Haskell SIG meeting at Flock 2016 where we talked a
little about current workflow and plans for F26.
Anyway while procrastinating on fixing the remaining F25 deps breakage, I
spent a little time test-building with ghc-8.0.1 for F26... below are my
I realized also at Flock that bundling missing libraries might be feasible
workaround for updating packages with missing deps though it is a little
tedious (and tricky to automate the packaging).
The following packages will need some work to build under ghc-8.0:
Agda (f25 too)
cabal-install (missing deps) - blocker obviously
darcs (f25 too)
snap-* -> hakyll
uuid -> git-annex
HSH (could be retired perhaps?)
warp -> scotty
idris (also f25)
I bumped quite a number of packages for transformers-0.5, base-4.9,
Overall not too bad already. Unfortunately stack's source is not in
haskell-platform-8.0.1. I also want to do the llvm37 review so that ghc can
be built in koji.
Will try to call for more help soon. :)
