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, 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.

Date: Wed, 4 Nov 2009 11:40:36 +0100 From: Gard Spreemann <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: GHC 6.12 and shared libraries User-Agent: KMail/1.12.2 (Linux/2.6.31-14-generic; KDE/4.3.2; i686; ; ) Hi. 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 policy? I just picked your email address from the GHC Ubuntu changelog, so please forgive me if you're not the right person to ask... :-) -- Gard Spreemann <email@example.com>, <firstname.lastname@example.org>, <email@example.com> <http://folk.ntnu.no/spreeman>
