Would it be a good idea for someone to bulk create bugs against ALL
packages that need to be updated to work with GHC 6.10?
- All such bugs are consistently named and thus easier to find when
searching the BTS; and
- The maintainer finds out *now*, rather than in a week or two when
someone actually tries to install their package;
- Someone has to sit down and set up the bulk creation.
- False positives?
- Some packages already have such bugs (e.g. #519704 above).
