Re: GHC 6.12.1 in experimental

We have successfully built 6.12 and GHC HEAD.  Any changes we made are here: http://src.seereason.com/haskell-devscripts-quilt/

I would've uploaded to unstable but I didn't yet get
haskell-devscripts to work with the new GHC.  I would've liked to
check that libraries would build smoothly first.

I pushed a few patches to haskell-devscripts' repository, but didn't
yet package a new version.  dh_haskell_shlibdeps doesn't work
currently and I didn't try to fix it.  There was a new Cabal version
along with GHC, so the way it handles packages has changed somewhat.
Libraries' package.conf files now reside as individual files in

Haskell libraries no need postinst and prerm scripts to register
themselves.  Registering is done by just dropping the corresponding
file to that directory.

That's the theory.  I have yet to test it more.  It might still need a
trigger on ghc6's side.

This GHC version should build on ia64, allowing it to enter testing.
Unless something else breaks.

That's all I can think about this now.  Could someone else have a look
at haskell-devscripts?
