Hello James, all,

On 2015-10-11 at 22:23, quoth James David Trotter:

Now that there are patches ready to provide the latest Haskell Platform
(version 7.10.2a as listed on [0]), i propose we refrain from packaging
things which GHC already provides.  Notably, providing a newer version
generally causes warnings (and occasional build failures depending on
which package we're talking about — Idris was one of those) that GHC
requires (e.g., as in this case) "transformers-" but some other
dependency requires "transformers-".  Therefore, we should only
package cabal items *not* on the `Core Libraries' list at [0].


Kind regards,
