Up to GHC 6.10.2, there used to be an installation chapter in the GHC
User's Guide (see "Chapter 2. Installing GHC" at
This section was very useful, for example, in determining whether it
was possible to move the GHC tree around in Windows, or, by extension,
whether it was necessary to uninstall GHC in order to install a later

However, starting with GHC 6.10.3, this chapter seems to be missing.
When I asked about this issue earlier on this mailing list a few
months ago, IIRC, one response was that the chapter was outdated.  Are
there any plans to update this chapter?  Every once in a while, I
forget whether GHC needs to be uninstalled in order to be updated on
Windows, and am forced to consult an earlier version of this chapter.
