Ticket #9 (closed task: fixed)
Produce an exact package list for distributions
|Reported by:||duncan||Owned by:|
For distributions we need to give clear specific advice on what they need to package to support the Haskell Platform.
This should take the form of an exact list of package names and versions. We should advise that the versions are important and that it is not ok to substitute different versions (particularly not different major versions).
We should advise that distros provide a meta-package corresponding to the Haskell Platform release. This is not an alien concept to distros as they already do this for GNOME and other systems that are collections of packages. It provides an easy way for users to get exactly the right bits. We should provide instructions on the download site (#5) for each distro that supports the platform.
