I have just moved ghc-7.0.1 and a large set
of Haskell ghc package rebuilds into dist-f15
(from dist-f15-ghc).

The main stacks have been rebuilt: darcs,
haskell-platform, xmonad, and gtk2hs.

Rebuilds still pending include xmobar, hlint,
and various libraries (currently with one or less dependents).
Any rawhide package that depends on a Haskell library
and hasn't already been rebuilt, must be rebuilt with ghc-7.0.1.

You can read more about ghc-7.0.1's new features in the release-notes:

This work is part of https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/GHC70

If you need help with rebuilding a package with ghc-7.0.1
please contact me, #fedora-haskell or haskell-devel list.

Testing and feedback of the new packages in rawhide is most welcome
in bugzilla or mailing-list.

Thanks, Jens
