     43=== What is in the Core Packages? ===

    4445The Core Packages are installed with every conforming Haskell implementation. 
     
    6263Bulat: i think that all regex packages should be included and of course libs that helps testing. overall, it should be any general-purpose lib that porters accept (emlarging these sets makes users live easier, and porters live harder)

     65=== The base package ===

    6667The base package is a bit special 
     
    9596Bulat: my ArrayRef library contains portable implementation of arrays. there is only thin ghc/hugs-specific layer which should be provided by ghcbase/hugsbase libs. except for MPTC problem (IArray/MArray classes has multiple parameters), this library should be easily portable to any other haskell compiler

     132=== Notes about GHC === 
    130133 
    131134Currently GHC installs a set of packages by default: base, stm, 
     
    170173itself, so we'll make it a GHC Boot Package.)
