Arch Haskell News: Mar 14 2009: 1000 Haskell Packages

We’ve reached a milestone: more than 1000 Haskell packages packaged up for Arch Linux.

Hackage now has 1163 (+41) Haskell packages, of which 1007 (+33) have been natively packaged for Arch in AUR. That’s 33 new packages in two weeks, and lots of updates as well.

  1. Out of curiosity, what’s your rationale to prefixing all package names with haskell-, rather than ghc-? As I understand it, these are precompiled libraries that are only useful to be linked into ghc-compiled programs?

    • Good question! Basically: ghc is the only haskell implementation we intend to support (following the same convention, Arch has python-* and ruby-* libraries)
