Windows build

Hi Simon,

For the tests what Ben’s email forgot to say was that the build system doesn’t pick up on changes to Timeout.

So you’d need to nuke it to get the fixes for timing related things: rm -rf testsuite/timeout/dist && rm -rf testsuite/timeout/install-inplace

And rerun the tests should fix a few including prog003. For the plugin ones we reverted the commit that caused the failures.

I’m currently working on fixing the hsc2hs ones you might see pop up every now and again. The haddock one is new as well, Don’t know what caused it. If you can nuke timeout and rebase to head you should only have the haddock one left.

Also we’ve nuked support for python 2. If you’re up to date with master then we only accept python 3 so that should be alright.

If you still have these failures (particularly the framework failures ones) could you possibly send me the errors printed on stderr?
The errors are hard to reproduce on all machines so logs help a lot.

Thanks for all the work you’ve been doing on the Windows build.
As requested by Tamar I removed ghc-tarballs, and reconfigured.
Then I built from scratch.
I get the following testsuite failures
