I'm working on a port of Haskell-Platform. I has the following
editline ==0.2.1.0, << I'm struggling with that a bit
network ==22.214.171.124, << I'm going to submit that (version 126.96.36.199)
time ==188.8.131.52, << I'm going to submit that (version 1.1.4)
It also has dependencies to Cabal 1.6.x which I've submitted last week
together with cabal-install. I'm porting the three remaining modules.
All others are already available in the ports. Although some of them are
The Haskell guys have adopted a versioning policy a while ago
not all ports follow it (e.g. HTTP). I'm a bit worried that they won't
all work together - especially if the major version doesn't match.
P.S. I'm gonna be off for the next three weeks, so don't be surprised if
I don't respond during that time.
