Re: Bug#737637: ITP: haskell-pipes -- Compositional pipelines
Thanks for pointing out that `pipes` was already packaged. I just went
by the Hackage page showing distro support and didn't see Debian listed,
but I should have double-checked. Sorry about that.
`pipes-zlib` can be fixed with a simple patch on the upper bound. This
has already been fixed in the `master` branch of `pipes-zlib` . I
don't know when Renzo plans to upload the latest `pipes-zlib` to Hackage
but I've copied him on this.
The threaded options for the `pipes` test suite are unnecessary. The
tests were written up by somebody else and I don't know why they
included those options; the tests run just fine without them. I fixed
this in the `master` branch of `pipes`  and I can optionally upload a
`pipes-4.1.1` release with those options removed. if it's not urgent
and you can patch it for Debian, I'd prefer to wait a month before
uploading a new release to Hackage. However, if you prefer to patch
upstream then I will upload it.

We already have pipes 4.0.1 in Debian. We can't upgrade to
4.1.0 without breaking pipes-zlib (unless this is simply a
matter of patching the upper bound on this one).
Since enabling the test suite, we get failures on mips and mipsel
because of "unknown RTS option: -N". Our method of detecting whether
a platform has threaded runtime has broken since libHSrts_thr.a
became a stub library on those architectures. If you have any ideas
on what should be done here, the packaging is in this darcs repo.
