I integrated in your changes and pushed. Thanks!

I agree that it's still not perfect; for example, build still requires downloading packages.

A recommendation here is to remove the ghc8.2 requirement, and instead a) create a build using shared libraries with dynamic linking or b) depend on the ghc-static (IIRC) package to use static linking

This is possible in part due to the earlier releases that added support for GHC 8.6, which means that pegging this to 8.2 is no longer necessary.

Personally I've made the minor change in

EDIT: That being said, I do not believe the package is out of date.

SECOND EDIT: To be fair, mine still has some glaring issues, such as all the linking ending up in my local Cabal store.

Not sure how to separate out the building from the downloading in cabal new-build, so I can fix this by moving everything to prepare().

As for the 'invalid or corrupt package', I'll need a little more context there, as I can't reproduce.

I get 'invalid or corrupt package' during the installation.

matterhorn-bin is broken too, as commented

Needs internet connetion during build(). Please make sure that build() does not need internet, by dealing with all download in the source-array and in prepare().

I think you need to install ghc8.2, which is available in the AUR.

i cannot build this or the other matterhorn packages currently

Hmm, I've run into things like this before with cabal and had to manually remove those packages that ghc-pkg check complains about. But I'm no cabal expert so there might be a better way that I'm unaware of.

In the worst case, you could try the matterhorn-bin package, which uses pre-built binaries so should work fine.

Hi there, thanks for the package!

I am unable to build, I get the following issue, any idea if there's anything I need to do?

Also I noticed cabal is using ~/.cache, I wonder if that's a cabal issue or if the package is missing some xdg magic.
