Description Jochen Schmitt 2010-03-08 16:11:39 UTC
Because the most current releases of ghc (F-13 and abouve) contains the ghc-utf8-string stuff, ghc should obsolete this package in a right way, so users can make a proper update to the new release of ghc without the usage of --nodeps.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2010-04-23 00:51:49 UTC
This build is still pending strange buildsystem errors for i686...
which I am looking into.

Looks like the following build may succeed finally...

Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2010-04-30 02:53:32 UTC
I am thinking perhaps it is better to bring back ghc-utf8-string
instead for F13 (it is already in devel for F14 since 6.12.2 does not
export utf8-string) and upstream says that the inclusion of
utf8-string in 6.12.1 was unintentional.

Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2010-04-30 02:56:08 UTC
(Additionally ghc-6.12 should be able to handle having two versions
of the same library system installed much better than 6.10.)

ghc-utf8-string-0.3.6-3.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
