Packaging Policy for Haskell on Arch Linux

Determined by the arch-haskell@ mailing list members.

Haskell Platform

As much as possible, Arch Linux will provide the Haskell Platform in binary form via [extra].

Popular Haskell programs

The most popular Haskell programs will be made available in binary form via [extra] or [community].


The largest coherent install plan for Hackage will be used to fill AUR with Haskell packages, using the cabal2arch tool.


Haskell packages will rely on core packages (those shipped with GHC) to be resolved via the "provides" mechanism.
