[gspreemann@gmail.com: GHC 6.12 and shared libraries]

Hi there,

I'm forwarding your mail to the Debian Haskell Group and to kaol, GHC's maintainer, for input, as I don't know much about this myself.

There was a recent thread about this[0], and Ganesh noted that there are still going to be no ABI guarantees provided, so this will cause us some trouble. We are yet to come up with a way of working around this.

I was just reading about the upcoming GHC 6.12 release and all its goodness
when I noticed that this version will support shared libraries (yay!). This
would mean a major shift in Ubuntu's packaging of Haskell libraries for Lucid,
right? Is there a policy in place, and has this been discussed? If so, where I
can read about it? Do you know if the Debian Haskell team has published any

I just picked your email address from the GHC Ubuntu changelog, so please
forgive me if you're not the right person to ask... :-)
