Thanks, you are right. Since I had to get 6.4
manually (testing is still stuck way back at 6.2),
I forgot that I do not get upgrades automatically.

Oooh, nice! I didn't know about this. So now I can
indeed get automatic updates.

It looks like there is nothing interesting there
in testing, though. So I guess I want unstable.

For the benefit of other Debian users, Google took
me here:


where I found the following lines to add to my
/etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb http://haskell-unsafe.alioth.debian.org/archive/i386 . unstable
deb-src http://haskell-unsafe.alioth.debian.org/archive/i386 . unstable

If you are using Debian stable, and you want the
not-quite-as-old Haskell packages from testing,
change "unstable" to "stable" in the above lines.
