Ticket #31 (new enhancement)
Automatically bring cabal packages forward with Platform install?
|Reported by:||jgbailey@…||Owned by:||dons|
Before installing the Haskell Platform, I had several versions of GHC installed, each with their own associated libraries. That was more by accident than on purpose, as I had not uninistalled older version of GHC.
Regardless, when I installed the platform, I had to install all those cabal packages again. That might get annoying if each new release of the Haskell platform requires me to rebuild my environment.
Note that I am talking about cabal packages that do NOT come with the Platform. I recognize Platform-included packages will be upgraded automatically by each install.
Note that I installed on Windows XP, but I don't think this is a OS-specific issue.
