Stack for package management?

The page currently only mentions cabal-install. Stack seems to be an easier way of setting up Haskell environments and getting dependencies (For instance: Crasm (talk) 22:21, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

- I made more clear Stack is available as an alternative build too, but I tried to imply on the first sentence that you can also use Stack if you want: "You can use Stack but..." but I was focusing on explaining how to get a cabal-install that works and links statically.

- About using stack from the repo ( or the upstream version manually installed, is about if having any haskell-* package installed is incompatible with this new cabal-install we are building. We'd need to check, because maybe installing stack from the repo and bringing those haskell-* packages doesn't affect the linking. Otherwise I was trying to explain how to build a cabal-install in a clean environment. Jimenezrick (talk) 17:59, 28 August 2017 (UTC)
