Himerge unmasked - (GHC too!)

Today I have just unmasked the himerge-0.13 package in the official Gentoo portage tree, so you only need to accept the testing ~amd64 or ~x86 keywords for now to install himerge. I expect to get the ebuild stabilized within the next few weeks too.

himerge-0.13 depends on ghc6.6 , so you have guessed right, ghc and many other packages depending on this compiler version have recently been unmasked too in the Gentoo tree, and if you even stop by #gentoo-haskell on the irc freenode network, you will see our team is pretty happy about it :-) ; and the stabilization process has also immediately started , since most of these packages have already been well tested by many users from our Gentoo-Haskell overlay since many months now, it's a matter of a few days until we probably can have all the packages stable in the portage tree.

Feel free to report me directly any himerge bug, or/and you can also send reports about any Haskell packages in Gentoo to our team email address at haskell_at_gentoo_dot_org

Regards and Enjoy!
