Well, I see that GHC 6.12.3-1 arrived in Arch Extra
yesterday, August 18, 2010.
It's nice to see, also, the bunches of AUR haskell-* packages
that are queued up, ready to upgrade ...
only it seems that a few packages are holding up the show:
# bauerbill -Su
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: haskell-binary: requires ghc=6.12.1
:: haskell-deepseq: requires ghc=6.12.1
:: haskell-haskell-src: requires ghc=6.12.1
:: haskell-hunit: requires ghc=6.12.1
:: haskell-pandoc: requires haskell-utf8-string>=0.3
:: haskell-parallel: requires ghc=6.12.1
:: haskell-quickcheck: requires ghc=6.12.1
:: haskell-quickcheck: requires haskell-mtl=188.8.131.52-3
:: haskell-xhtml: requires ghc=6.12.1
:: haskell-zip-archive: requires haskell-utf8-string>=0.3.1
Most of these packages are in Extra. One of those in Extra
already had a bug report by Stefan Husmann, and I've filed reports
for the rest. (I guess that's the appropriate thing to do, rather
than complain to this list, because I gather the maintainers of
packages on Extra are not necessarily subscribers?)
In case you'd like to vote for fixing these bugs, here
are the links:
The only ones in AUR are haskell-pandoc
and haskell-zip-archive, both of which need a version of
haskell-utf8-string, which apparently can't be upgraded
because ghc cannot be upgraded because of the aforesaid
guilty packages in Extra.
