dev-haskell / hspec

A Testing Framework for Haskell

Official package sites : ·

Behavior Driven Development for Haskell Hspec is roughly based on the Ruby library RSpec. However, Hspec is just a framework for running HUnit and QuickCheck tests. Compared to other options, it provides a much nicer syntax that makes tests very easy to read.

*/*: destabilize dev-lang/ghc for all arches
dev-lang/ghc is a fast-moving target without much of stable API across major GHC releases. This makes stabilization process a fragile process. The change moves all haskell revdeps to pure ~arch. There are not many outside dev-haskell/*: - app-emulation/ganeti - app-text/pandoc - dev-util/bustle - dev-util/shellcheck - dev-vcs/darcs - x11-wm/xmonad/xmonad Existing stable haskell users are recommended to keyword used packages and all of dev-haskell/* to ease upgrades.

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
