Register a new account

Certain actions on this website require you to have an account. In particular you need an account to be able to upload or help maintain packages.

Using the form below you can register an account.

This is what will be displayed on the site, e.g. Jan Novák
This has to be ASCII with no spaces or symbols (except '_'), e.g. JanNovak
e.g. jnovak@example.com (but do not use the style "Jan Novák" <jnovak@example.com>)

Your email address will be used to confirm your account (and if you ever need to reset your password). It will also be used if one of the site administrators ever needs to contact you. It will not be displayed on the website (but note that email addresses in .cabal files that you upload are public).

Most contributors to Hackage attach their real name to their packages and contributions. However, we have no wish to discourage contributors with personal or professional reasons for wanting pseudonymity. We ask only that such people choose a name (and username) that looks at home among a collection of real names; we will be unwilling to add Kittenlover97 to the package uploader group.

You will be sent an email containing a link to a page where you can set your password and activate your account.
