#3046 closed bug (duplicate)

Generalized newtype deriving with associated types

When I have a

    class Foo a where
	type Bar a
	foobar :: a -> Bar a


instance Foo Fooey ...


newtype Fooey2 = F2 (Fooey) deriving (Foo) 

I expect the automatically generated deriving to include

type Bar Fooey2 = Bar Fooey

but this is not the case: I cannot get an associated type from a newtype to resolve to anything. My guess is that the combination of -XTypeFamilies and -XGeneralizedNewtypeDeriving is rare enough that this may simply not have been thought of yet, but it's something I'd like to see fixed.

(duplicate of #2850 in case you find this one first)

  • Type of failure set to None/Unknown

I don't think this is a duplicate of #2850, but I do think it is a duplicate of #8165.

Correct; #8165 is the relevant ticket, and has a good discussion string.
