Haskell Platform 2013.2 Proposal Status

I just spoiled my day by http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/7748
with ghc-7.6.2 in our large project:

hets: <<loop>>

hets works fine with ghc-7.6.1 (and older versions). I haven't located 
the error yet, though.

Yet, I therefore conclude, GHC 7.6.2 ist not suited for the official HP.

Cheers Christian
