I'm trying to make the 2.5 branch with GHC 7.0 RC1. This email is just to
record progress so someone else can pick this up if they want to.
Here's what I've found/done so far:
- Distribution.ShellHarness uses the Permissions type from
System.Directory, which has now become abstract. I've asked Ian (who made
the change) about this, but I guess it'll require CPP as there's no window
in which both APIs are available.
- dataenc 0.13.0.3 has dependencies that don't allow the latest
base/containers. I've sent a patch to Magnus.
- test-framework-quickcheck2 doesn't build with the latest QuickCheck,
but older QuickChecks don't compile with GHC 7.0. I haven't tried to fix
this or contacted Max about it yet.
- regex-posix causes a crash in GHC:
