Notes about travis and ghc

Brief note about current status of ghc and travis-ci.

Recently made a build hook for continuous integration with travis, in one of the repository I have in github, by following getting started guide. The package is requiring base >= 4.6.0, which is from ghc-7.6.*, though the version used in travis build was base >= 4.5.*, which is from ghc-7.4.1. There is an issue in github mentioning ghc version used by travis builds.

It is still possible to use CPP, #ifdefs and choose the appropriate dependency package version. Might be an opportunity to do this, though I'm not sure the package worth for having that much maintenance efforts.

TAGGED: ci, ghc, git, travis
