Hey List,


In this bug report, we came across a pretty much non critical issue,
but important for people who like to track these things. For the
haskell platform, there are two ways of getting the tarballs of the
various packages. 1) We can get them from the haskell platform
megatarball, or 2) we can get them from hackage. Question is, what do
we do:

1) Pros:

This is the actual haskell platform

1) Cons:

The checksums don't always match
It's harder put a URL in the spec file

2) Pros:

There's a one stop shop for getting everything
We don't need custom urls for things that are in the platform vs.
things not in the platform, (in terms of the template in cabal2spec)

2) Cons:

This is plausibly not the haskell platform

My two cents are for option 2. My opinion is that if the checksums are
not matching, then it's probably a bug in the haskell platform's
release engineering.
