Gentoo Resources for Haskell


1.  Project Description

The Haskell project maintains the packages for Haskell implementations, libraries and development tools. We support GHC, Hugs and Helium though GHC is the best supported. The library packages work only with GHC.

There is an overlay where we work on Haskell ebuilds before getting them into the main portage cvs tree. You can get the overlay using layman.

All development discussion takes place on the #gentoo-haskell irc channel. This channel is the appropriate place to report bugs in packages that are in the overlay. They should not be reported in bugzilla, that's the place to report bugs about packages in the main portage cvs tree.
