    (why lts-18.28? it's the latest 8.10 release on )

    I don't see way community maintenance can change the GHC for nightly.
  • Is it possible to install C libraries before building on Hackage?
    3 projects | | 12 Aug 2021
    It makes total sense that it fails since at no point I requested that the library be installed, which makes me wonder: Is there any way to request Hackage to install SDL and GLEW before attempting the build? I see Stackage has Does something similar exist for Hackage?
  • No idea how to add packages
    1 project | | 27 Jun 2021
    At this point, you can try a Stack snapshot that uses an older version of GHC. Looking at Stackage, you can see that the latest version before 8.10.* is 8.8.4 (using LTS 16.31). Starting over with that snapshot, you find that the packages that you need are in the snapshot and work.

    On the contrary, I think this is standard practice for packages which are part of stackage. When stackage nightly switches to a new version of ghc, all the packages which are incompatible with the new ghc are dropped from nightly. My understanding is that maintainers are then expected to fix their packages, at which point more and more packages are included in the nightly snapshot. The next lts to include that version of ghc is only released later, once most packages have been added back, so unlike ghc users who diligently upgrade to the latest ghc, stackage users who diligently upgrade the latest lts snapshot shouldn't see a big drop in the number of compatible packages.

    This is a common misconception, the packages in Stackage are only required to build together and pass their own test suite (if present, and this is also not a hard requirement), and also anyone can add packages. Quality assurance/selecting "blessed" packages is not part of the design of Stackage.

    I will say that perhaps upper-bounds shouldn't (or rarely) exist? Smarter people than me have probably discussed it to death. But upper-bounds aside, different packages working together is a property of those packages, not of whatever tool happens to build them, so package inconsistency or "cabal hell" should naturally arise from any tool that actually checks if two packages have declared themselves as mutually incompatible...
  • Talk about new random's interface
    4 projects | | 28 Jan 2021
    That's the perfect place for this question. The answer is a lot of packages depend on random and a lot of people put restrictive upper bounds, because that's what PVP advises us to do. So, it is expected for a community to take some time to catch up. Here is the ticket that lists the list of the packages that are left to be updated:
