Head of ghc is broken not head of time. Ghc is currently set to 6e202ed while head is 4eb06c0. So checking out the master branch of libraries/time should bring you to a working build.

I am currently without my ssh keys so cannot push it. If someone else wants to update it? Otherwise I'll do so when I get home.

well HEAD is broken, so surely it should go either forward or backward.  But the status quo is not good.

My instinct: push the new submodule.  But I defer to Ben etc

The package has been fixed already but the submodule hasn't been updated. For a quick fix just cd into libraries/time and checkout master.

I was hesitant to push the new submodule since we hadn't branched yet for 8.2

Please please please could some one fix this?  On windows.
It’s frustrating being unable to build.

libraries\time\lib\Data\Time\Clock\Internal\SystemTime.hs:57:5: error:

    Not in scope: data constructor    FILETIME

    Perhaps you meant    Win32.FILETIME    (imported from System.Win32.Time)


57 |     FILETIME ft <- Win32.getSystemTimeAsFileTime
