Just a heads up that ghc-7.6.3 (Haskell compiler) from F20 was built
for EPEL 7 Beta last week.  Lot of building of Haskell packages still
to be done there.

Current EPEL versions are:

EPEL5: ghc-7.0.4 (recently updated)
EPEL6: ghc-7.0.4 (updated in 2012; update to 7.4.2 planned)
EPEL7: ghc-7.6.3

We will probably stay with 7.6.3 in EPEL7 at least until
after ghc-7.8 is completely stable (ie when rawhide moves to 7.10+)
and works on ppc64.


ps I would also like to add Software Collections for different
ghc versions for EL to better allow users to choose the version
of ghc best for them.
