Many packages blocked on Stackage nightly for GHC 8.2.1

Dan Burton
Please be advised that many packages were dropped from the Stackage nightly build plan in order to arrive at a successful build with the new ghc. (Note that this does not affect the build plans for LTS 9.) This is to be expected whenever ghc gets a major version bump. For details, see: https://github.com/fpco/stackage/blob/master/MAINTAINERS.md

We have attempted to contact package authors whose packages were dropped. However, comprehensive notification is not fully automated, and there may be many who have not been directly contacted. You can check your section of build-constraints.yaml, as well as stackage.org/nightly, to see which of your packages are currently absent from the build plan.

You may restore your packages to the nightly build plan (once they are buildable with ghc 8.2.1) in the same way they were added: by opening a PR, uncommenting your packages in build-constraints.yaml.

Thank you for your efforts to keep the Haskell ecosystem up to date.

Thank you for continuing to take on this communication work, curators and authors. The responsiveness has been phenomenal.

Cheers,
