Stack - The Haskell Build Tool
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I'd like to propose to add Stack, the haskell build tool, to the software Center
Name: Stack
Homepage: https://docs.haskellstack.org/en/stable/README/
This would be great, since the normal build process via cabal seems to be faulty. A lot of packages seem to need a rebuild. By including this package in the Software Center, it would avoid the struggle with cabal, and the ecosystem of Haskell itself.
Open-Source: Yes
Tarball: https://hackage.haskell.org/package/stack-1.3.2/stack-1.3.2.tar.gz
Haskell is one of the most used languages on github, therefore i'd estimate that a bunch of people will need it, and it helps newcomers to work with haskell too, since this is the preferred building tool.

Currently, only 63 of 139 discovered deps remain. I'm averaging 15-20 deps a day, but have also discovered some new ones as I have been packaging. Hoping to have this done by the weekend.

That was officially the hardest thing I have ever packaged.

Landed in unstable:

https://git.solus-project.com/packages/haskell-stack/commit/?id=0af01e3d27047d4476dac43f685abdb6661e3991

This package seems quite out of date and "stack setup" fails because it is out of date.

@flocomkoko please do not re-open old closed task for another purpose (this was about adding stack in the repo and it was done); instead open a new task.
