Haskell is a standardized purely functional programming language with non-strict semantics, named after the logician Haskell Curry. It is one of the more popular functional languages, and the lazy functional language on which the most research is being performed.

If you do not find a package in devel:languages:haskell that was here before it is because it has "bitrotted" and nobody cared to fix it for about a year. In that case I (Peter) move those packages to d:l:h:unmaintained. See there for instructions on how to resurrect a package.

https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/openSUSE:13.2 - the whole haskell stack is not bootstrapable

Peter Trommler ptrommler wrote 6 months ago

You need a binary ghc. The binary in Factory would do.

Peter Trommler ptrommler wrote 6 months ago

The workflow must have changed since 13.1, where bootstrap worked without any actions on my side. What can I do to help with the new workflow?

ptrommler: please remove Thumbleweed or Factory target, it's same , only link one to other

Peter Trommler ptrommler wrote 28 days ago

I can't:
Failed to remove target 'openSUSE_Tumbleweed' Unable to delete repository; following repositories depend on this project:

It should be possible to force removal, I will try to remember how.

and now how to support SLE12? ... linkpac dblatex ? and enable to SLE12 ?

Peter Trommler ptrommler wrote 27 days ago

We could build without dblatex on SLE12 or try the linked package. dblatex is build requirement only. I'll take a look.

Ondřej Súkup mimi_vx wrote 27 days ago

i vote to remove dblatex ... is used only to generate PDF and PS docs ... which is better to use from upstream and not to generate in every build

Sounds reasonable

I found it to be pretty complicated to maintain distribution packages of hackage packages. Mainly because of incompatabilities between certain versions of these packages. Stackage solves this problem for users who use it directly. Couldn't we use the versions from Stackage LTS for the packages in devel:languages:haskell?

Best regards

There were some comments at https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/283889. I'm working on getting an opensuse-haskell mailing list set up so we can take the discussion there. Just waiting for the admin to set it up.
