Ticket #97 (assigned enhancement)
The default install dir for cabal-install should be $PLATFORMDIR/cabal
|Reported by:||refold||Owned by:||refold|
Installer should set the default cabal-install install directory to $PLATFORMDIR/cabal (or something similar). Users find having two different directories for "Haskell stuff" confusing:
"OK. But given that I said "install Haskell" in *this* location, I sort of expected all my Haskell stuff to go there."
