Severity: serious

helium fails to build with GHC 7.6:

  [ 23 of 162] Compiling Logger           ( utils/Logger.hs, utils/Logger.o )
  
  utils/Logger.hs:110:50: Not in scope: `catch'
  
  utils/Logger.hs:120:23: Not in scope: `catch'
  
  utils/Logger.hs:155:2: Not in scope: `catch'
  
  utils/Logger.hs:169:11: Not in scope: `catch'
  
  utils/Logger.hs:220:7: Not in scope: `catch'
  make[1]: *** [compiler] Error 1

There are quite a few matches for catch, so I suspect a fair amount of
porting is needed.

Subject: Maintenance state of Helium?
Date: Mon, 17 Jun 2013 16:25:15 +0200
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hi,

the Debian package of Helium, version 1.7~pre20090428 with many patches:
http://patch-tracker.debian.org/package/helium/1.7~pre20090428-4
fails to compile with the current GHC (mostly due to the changed
exception code):
https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=helium&arch=i386&ver=1.7~pre20090428-4&stamp=1369440801

What is the maintenance state of helium? Are you planning to release (or
pre-release) a version compatible with GHC 7.6 in the near future, or
should we remove helium from Debian?

Greetings,
Joachim
