* gnu/packages/haskell.scm (ghc-8.10): New variable.

Two tests are failing, I am not sure why, but I have already spent too much
time on this.

This test looks like it's failing because it has a "#! /bin/sh" shebang
in 'T8602.script'.

> +                              "testsuite/tests/driver/T16521/all.T")

This test looks like it's the only one which uses '-include-cpp-deps',
and it looks like it's the only test which includes a file in the
libraries directory. Perhaps a search path issue?

Hope that helps,
Sarah

Ah, good catch!

I am not familiar with CPP stuff, but I will see what I can do about it.

Thank you for the pointers!  I will try to find some time to work on
this during the weekend.

* gnu/packages/haskell.scm (ghc-8.10): New variable.
---
Changes since v1:

* Fix /bin/sh path in one of the tests.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to fix the T16521 test; I tried
setting the C_INCLUDE_PATH variable to ‘libraries/process/include’, but
it’s still not able to find ’processFlags.h’.  Not sure if there is
anything else I could try.  Would it be OK to merge this despite the
failing test?

Also, this patch should go to the ‘wip-haskell’ branch; once/if it gets
merged it would be a good idea to update the Stackage LTS release and
update all the Haskell packages.

Hi,

> Any comments/thoughts on this, anyone?
I looked at the patch and would like to propose minor modifications. In
particular I

- removed the 'fix-cc-name phase, which is inherited from ghc-8.8 anyway
- converted the failing test (which I can’t get to pass either) into
  an expected failure instead of nulling it out and
- renamed the package to ghc-next, which should avoid
  https://issues.guix.gnu.org/47335 – if we also rename GHC 8.8 in a
  different patch.

I think we can merge this patch to master, since it only adds a new GHC
version and has no further implications. Thoughts?

Cheers,
Lars

Aye, the patch has bitrotted a bit.

Either way works for me.  :-)

AFAIK, ‘-next’ packages are usually unstable versions of the regular
version, e.g., ‘emacs-next’ and ‘guile-next’.  ‘ghc-8.10’ is a stable
release, so I am not sure if the ‘-next’ prefix is appropriate.

Also, I would imagine that other language ecosystems also have to
problem of the default compiler not being the latest version, e.g., the
‘rust’ package points to rust-1.45, but rust-1.52 is the latest
available version.

Originally, the plan was to apply this patch to the ‘wip-haskell’
branch, which contained a patch that results in rebuilding all Haskell
pacakges, and then update our Stackage LTS version (which hasn’t been
updated for ~2 years)[1].  But seeing as there isn’t much interest in a
Haskell update, applying to ‘master’ seems like a better idea.

The updated patch LGTM, and great that you updated it to 8.10.7!

A patch to master would probably be more helpful to get people to try to build their favorite packages with 8.10 to find any issues. Although I guess we'd want to do that in wip-haskell for everything anyway.

And then yes, we'll need to do a Stackage update for whatever release is the latest that uses 8.10. Hopefully we can get a big chunk of that through guix refresh. 8.10 will have to come first.

that is true, but I don’t see any other way to make

	guix environment --pure --ad-hoc ghc ghc-aeson -- ghci
	> import Data.Aeson

do “the right thing” by default. We could also argue that from
Guix’s point of view GHC 8.8/8.10 is (right now) unstable, because our
entire set of Haskell packages is built with GHC 8.6 (and thus untested
with higher versions of base). We also have python-next@3.9.2 on master
with (I think) exactly the same purpose. So, unless there’s any strong
objections I’ll be bold and rename GHC>8.6 to ghc-next, explaining
the situation in a comment.

> But seeing as there isn’t much interest in a

I’m counting three people (John, you and me) interested in getting
Haskell back into shape, so let’s just do it :)

Cheers,
Lars

Ah, from Guix’s perspective GHC>8.6 would be unstable I guess.  Feel
free to push!  :-)
