Description Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2017-09-16 17:53:14 UTC
ghc-8.0.2 is in tree for a while.

It might be slightly more than one package to stabilize.
Before CCing arches we need to get in shape at least amd64
to gather full list of packages.

Helper doc on how to do that:
Comment 1 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2017-09-20 14:34:57 UTC
As I read from bug 593892, this is needed for gcc-6 stabilization.
Comment 2 Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2017-09-23 16:52:15 UTC
Created attachment 496180 [details]

Grabbed the whole list of packages to stable to make all haskell@ packages compile and pass tests against 8.0.2. 125 entries so far.
Comment 3 Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2017-09-24 18:03:37 UTC
I've stabled ghc-8.0.2 and friends on x86 and amd64
Comment 4 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2017-09-27 15:29:43 UTC
How about the other arches?
Comment 5 Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2017-09-30 05:07:52 UTC
Rest of arches will follow as well but no need to block gcc stabilization on them.

OK then I remove the dependency. Thanks!
Comment 7 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2018-04-18 09:27:15 UTC
Why the other arches were not CCed?

Stable on alpha.
Comment 10 ernsteiswuerfel 2018-10-11 18:33:08 UTC
dev-lang/ghc-8.0.2 would need to be keyworded first for ppc/ppc64/sparc.
Comment 11 Rolf Eike Beer 2020-04-08 21:11:02 UTC
Haskell support dropped on sparc.
Comment 12 Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2020-04-14 06:38:29 UTC
dropped stable keywords from ghc.
