    1111A source distribution is a file like {{{ghc-6.6-src.tar.bz2}}}, which contains a complete snapshot of the source tree for a particular version of GHC.  Source distributions for all versions of GHC are available from the [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/download.html download page]. 
    12  
    13 Starting with GHC 6.6, we have split the source distribution in two: 
    14  
    15  * {{{ghc-<version>-src.tar.bz2}}} contains GHC itself and the minimum libraries needed to bootstrap GHC. 
    16  * {{{ghc-<version>-src-extralibs.tar.bz2}}} contains a selection of supplemental libraries that can be built 
    17    and installed at the same time as GHC.  Just unpack this on top of {{{ghc-<version>-src.tar.bz2}}}, and 
    18    the extra libraries will be built automatically.

    2013In addition to fixed releases of GHC, source distributions are also made each night from the current source repository, for both the HEAD and STABLE branches.  To download these snapshots, head over to the [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/download.html download page].
