I'm now considering to debianize the Yi Editor
(http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Yi). I know Yi is still in its
early beta or maybe alpha stage, but already somewhat usable(I've been
giving it a try every half a year or so and found it's steadily
improving), and its concept is too fascinating to ignore ;-)
I'm a DD, but I'm relatively new to Haskell and this will be my first
Haskell-related package, so I appreciate your help(or please let me
know if someone's already working on it or packaging Yi is a bad idea
in the first place ;-). I have a very rough preliminary package, but
I'm not filing ITP yet.
There are several questions, but firstly, I would like to ask about
Haskell package dependency on Debian. I could build the current Yi
0.6.4.0 (with some tweaks for alex 3), but it seems to depend the
following Haskell packages which are not available in Debian sid yet:
Also, if we try to build Yi with Pango, then we need newer gtk2hs
version >=0.13.5 (currently we have 0.13.4 in sid ).
I read most of Haskell pages on Debian Wiki, and from my
understanding, the right way to put them in Debian is joining Alioth
pkg-haskell project. Is this correct? And do I have to package them
by myself? Does anyone working on it?
