Last year was discussed the deprecation of GHCi's tag generation
feature, as it had become a liability with recent additions to the
language, like Unboxed Sums¹.
The deprecation process starts with GHC 9.4, and merge request !6325².
TL;DR: The ghc-tags tool has been elected to replace the tags feature.
This is being documented in the "Tags" wiki page³.
You are invited to help with broadcasting this announcement to your
fellow Haskell users.
I will post on Reddit and the Haskell Discourse but increasing the
coverage of this will be important.
