Package: haskell-cabal
Severity: wishlist


There are a few of things I'd like to see:

1. The ability to specify custom args to haddock, which is necessary
   to do things such as build docs that encompass parts of other

2. Specify include and library paths that are used for building the
   package only, and do not end up in the GHC packages file.

3. Have an executable pull in the library in the same .cabal file

4. Permit building of some or none of the executables in a .cabal file

5. Permit build deps for an executable, so that it can have more deps
   than the larger library.  (Example for me: hunit)

Subject: haskell-cabal has been removed from Debian, closing #293523
Date: Fri, 23 May 2008 14:38:55 +0100
Version: 1.1.3+rm

The haskell-cabal package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
