Project Description

We are currently at GHC-8.10.7, which a bit old. So I'd like to take a shot at the latest version of the compiler, GHC-9.4.4. This is gonna be interesting because we need a new bootstrapping process to build that compiler with Hadrian. (The GNU Make build system is obsolete.) A significant part of the development effort will be live-streamed on Twitch so that others can collaborate easily.

Goal for this Hackweek

Have working builds of GHC-9.4.4 and the required Haskell packages in 'devel:languages:haskell` so that we can compile:

  • git-annex
  • pandoc
  • xmonad
  • cabal-install

Resources

Looking for hackers with the skills:

haskell ghc opensuse tumbleweed packaging livestreaming
