Description Jens Petersen 2015-09-28 04:01:54 EDT
Spec URL: http://petersen.fedorapeople.org//ghc-extra.spec
SRPM URL: http://petersen.fedorapeople.org//ghc-extra-1.4.2-1.fc22.src.rpm

A library of extra functions for the standard Haskell libraries. Most functions
are simple additions, filling out missing functionality. A few functions are
available in later versions of GHC, but this package makes them available back
to GHC 7.2.

The module "Extra" documents all functions provided by this library.
Modules such as "Data.List.Extra" provide extra functions over "Data.List" and
also reexport "Data.List". Users are recommended to replace "Data.List" imports
with "Data.List.Extra" if they need the extra functionality.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2017-11-19 02:39:23 EST
Currently a subpackage of hlint
Comment 3 Robert-André Mauchin 2017-11-19 11:05:30 EST
 - Please package the latest version, version 1.6.

 - Build fails for me:

Preprocessing test suite 'extra-test' for extra-1.4.2...
[1 of 4] Compiling TestUtil         ( test/TestUtil.hs, dist/build/extra-test/extra-test-tmp/TestUtil.dyn_o )
test/TestUtil.hs:66:5: error:
    ‘exhaustive’ is not a (visible) method of class ‘Testable’
test/TestUtil.hs:70:5: error:
    ‘exhaustive’ is not a (visible) method of class ‘Testab
Comment 5 Robert-André Mauchin 2017-12-20 11:04:19 EST
 - Please use a better summary, "Extra functions I use" is quite vague.

 - I can't build it in Mock because it requires:

Setup: Encountered missing dependencies:
QuickCheck >=2.10

   Only version 2.9.2 is available in Rawhide.
   Fortunately you're also the maintainer of that package, maybe you could bump it.
Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2017-12-21 01:45:01 EST
Okay thanks, sorry about that: I thought I had built it locally.

I am downgrading to the version from LTS 9, since that is closer to current Fedora:

 You should split the doc in a separate subpackage.

Did we discuss this before?

Current Fedora Haskell Packaging doesn't play well with doc subpackaging.
I am planning to subpackage docs in a future Fedora release, though
Comment 9 Robert-André Mauchin 2017-12-26 12:54:06 EST
Yes we did.

Package approved.
Comment 10 Jens Petersen 2017-12-27 04:38:17 EST
Thanks a lot, Robert-André

Comment 11 Gwyn Ciesla 2017-12-27 07:48:25 EST
(fedrepo-req-admin):  The Pagure repository was created at https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/ghc-extra. You may commit to the branch "f27" in about 10 minutes.
Comment 12 Jens Petersen 2018-01-02 02:15:03 EST
Oops I just realised that extra needs clock (currently also a subpackage of hlint) to build...
