I took haskell-time to version 1.1.4, as required by the next version
of haskell-platform. The license is the same, but there an issue with
the dependencies. The reverse-dependencies on libghc6-time-dev 1.2.4-3
are unversioned, but ghc6 6.12.1-12 also provides the name in another
I'm confused :) If the separate package is not needed, shouldn't the
new ghc6 conflict with it? In that case, the Haskell Platform debian
wiki is out-of-date, as we already provide 1.1.4.
Other than that, haskell-time 1.1.4 is just a matter of inserting a
new entry in debian/changelog, as far as I can tell. We can also
comment on #426612 that the Typeable instances are already provided.
PS: I have no place to upload any changes, as I am in no alioth project.
