About the custom GHC fork
Asterius currently is based on a custom GHC fork maintained here. We regularly merge
master commits back, build new bindists and use them on CI, to ensure our fork doesn't get bit-rotten and become painful to upstream back.
Here is a complete list of differences we've made in the fork (surprisingly few at the moment):
- Enable D5079 and D5082, which are kindly offered by Joachim Breitner but not all landed in
- Implement additional
appveyor-ghc-bindist branches of
asterius repo for CI scripts to build bindists for the fork. The AppVeyor script is broken for now.
