I am thinking to build this in rawhide for F17 nearer the end of the F16 cycle.
By that time 7.4 may already have been released, and hopefully a haskell-platform release.
In the meantime/short-term there is a test build here:
The binary packages can be downloaded from http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/scratch/petersen/task_3267317/
I will probably upload a build to fedorapeople later.
I uploaded the build here:
until 7.2 is built for rawhide.
Recap: no official haskell-platform release is planned for 7.2
nor any updates to ghc-7.2: ie I believe there won't be a 7.2.2.
ghc-7.4 which will be the next major stable release of ghc
is now expected at the end of 2011.
Work is currently undergoing to release an updated haskell-platform
It might still be worth putting 7.2.1 into rawhide though
to get a feel for the coming 7.4 release... 7.2.1 is also
the current default compiler in Hackage.
Since no haskell-platform planned for ghc-7.2 - we could close this
and wait for 7.4. Though I may still build 7.2 for rawhide.
