You might have mentioned that there is finally a tracker (*) and
an approximate .cabal meta-package (for dependencies only).
- is the programs are not registered by Cabal issue going to be
fixed before platform release?
- haddock currently seems bundled with ghc, for interdependency
- shouldn't there be some compilers in the platform release as well
(and possibly a language/library report)?
- I'd like to see ghc-paths somewhere, too.
Registering programs with cabal or having ghc installation info via
ghc-paths may look minor, as the packages would be tiny, with
meta-information only, but that is surprisingly useful.
(*) please could the email notifications be switched on for
haskell.org-hosted trackers by default (haven't tried this one
yet, but notifications are off for haddock's tracker)? Trackers
that don't inform anyone of ticket activity are of limited use;-)
