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` [0]. 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` [1] 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.

Hi Gabriel,

We already have pipes 4.0.1 in Debian[0].  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[1]
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[2].
