Product     : Fedora 21

Summary     : RPM packaging tool for Haskell Cabal-based packages
Description :
Cabal-rpm is a tool for RPM packaging of Haskell Cabal-based packages.
It interacts with yum to install build dependencies and can also act as
a cabal-install wrapper installing dependencies packaged in Fedora before
running "cabal install".

cblrpm has commands to generate a RPM spec file and srpm for a package.
It can rpmbuild packages, yum install their dependencies, prep packages, and
install them. There are commands to list package dependencies and missing
dependencies. The diff command compares the current spec file with a freshly
generated one and the update command updates the spec file to latest version
from Hackage.

Update Information:

various bug fixes and improvements; new "update" command to update spec to latest version; improved missingdeps output; use https for hackage URLs; no longer override %_sourcedir, %_rpmdir, and %_srcrpmdir, unless git dir; use TMPDIR
