above extra

In this section, it is said that haskell-core should be above extra but at the sane time we are warning users about that. So what's that? We have to clarify that?--Xan (talk) 07:18, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

I mean this: "above [extra], to ensure the correct ghc package is picked)" and this "Placing [haskell-core] above [extra] will cause packages from [haskell-core] to take precedence, and avoid dependency conflicts in case of duplicate package". It seems contradictorial. Thanks Magus. --Xan (talk) 07:38, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
