Haskell in Debian

The how and why of packaging Haskell libraries

The functional programming language Haskell is more and more failing to “avoid success at all costs”. Naturally, Debian wants to provide its users a good and thorough Haskell experience. This talk gives an overview of the Haskell ecosystems, the technical implication of static linking and cross-module inlining and how we use virtual package to guarantee a usable installations. The target audience are users (or prospective users) of Haskell on Debian, developers and package maintainers of programs built with Haskell and of course developers who want to join the Debian Haskell Group.
