 * Status of reproducible of our packages, for [[https://reproducible.debian.net/unstable/amd64/pkg_set_maint_pkg-haskell-maintainers.html|unstable]] and [[https://reproducible.debian.net/testing/amd64/pkg_set_maint_pkg-haskell-maintainers.html|testing]].

Haskell is a pure functional language. The Debian Haskell Group (DHG for friends!) is the team committed to packaging and maintaining a working and up-to-date Haskell environment and library in Debian.

Upstream references

  • http://www.haskell.org/ -- Haskell main web site

  • http://www.haskell.org/cabal/ -- Cabal (Common Architecture for Building Applications and Libraries), a program used to distribute many Haskell packages. Importing in Debian cabalized Haskell packages is quite an easy task, because most of the packaging and metadata writing work is already done. This is why we accept in Debian nearly only Cabal packages (nearly all Haskell packages are cabalized, though, so that's not a very restrictive decision).

  • http://hackage.haskell.org/ -- Hackage, the main Haskell packages archive; nearly any Haskell package you can find is here.

Team contacts

Note that the maintainer address list (pkg-haskell-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org) tends to be very noise due to automatic mail, e.g. from the Debian archive), so discussions are easier on haskell-debian@lists.debian.org.

Team infrastructure

Haskell packaging

All team-maintained packages are kept in Darcs repositories. These repositories are integrated with the Package Entropy Tracker, which makes it easier to check how things are going with Haskell package.

TODO list

A raw list of things to do, hoping that someday someone will start working on them...

Relevant packages

  • GHC is now being team maintained

Out-of-date things

This list is kept for historical interest. If you're interested how things (should) go now, you're in the wrong place.
