Build Status


One of the requirements of this package is to restrict ourselves to "core" dependencies. The definition of core is still to be decided, but here's a working start:

  • No dependency on system libraries, beyond that which is required by other dependencies.
  • Anything which ships with GHC. However, we must retain compatibility with versions of those packages going back to at least GHC 7.4, and preferably earlier.
  • text, once again with backwards compatibility for versions included with legacy Haskell Platform. In other words, 0.11.2 support is required.
  • network, support back to 2.3. We do not need to support the network/network-bytestring split.
  • stm, preferably all the way back to 2.1.
  • transformers

For debate:

  • Other Haskell Platform packages, especially vector and attoparsec.
