[...] There's no libghc-rts-dev-VERSION-HASH, but there is libghc-rts-dev, the file (instead of the directory) and the package. There's no libghc-utf8-string-dev-VERSION-HASH, nor directory, nor package, but there's libghc-utf8-string-dev. The same holds for xhtml. How should this be fixed: libghc-ghc-dev and libghc-rts-dev-VERSION-HASH should be provided, and libghc-utf8-string-dev and libghc-xhtml-dev should be droped. The problem about libghc-rts-dev-VERSION-HASH is that this information is not given in ghc-pkg describe, so maybe this can be an exception. About the ghc, utf8-string and xhtml packages, does anyone has a clue about what caused these bugs?
I spoke about this on IRC a few weeks ago. GHC stopped providing at least utf8-string between 6.12.1 and 6.12.3, and it's probably now stopped providing xml too. In Ubuntu we uploaded a patch to stop ghc6 from Providing utf8-string. I also re-uploaded the source package for it, and am in the middle of adding BDs to the reverse depends again. We'll want to do the same in Debian too. Cheers, Iain
