      Implementation of hsig (module signatures), per #9252 · aa479953
      Edward Z. Yang authored
      Summary:
      Module signatures, like hs-boot files, are Haskell modules which omit
      value definitions and contain only signatures.  This patchset implements
      one particular aspect of module signature, namely compiling them against
      a concrete implementation.  It works like this: when we compile an hsig
      file, we must be told (via the -sig-of flag) what module this signature
      is implementing.  The signature is compiled into an interface file which
      reexports precisely the entities mentioned in the signature file.  We also
      verify that the interface is compatible with the implementation.
      
      This feature is useful in a few situations:
      
          1. Like explicit import lists, signatures can be used to reduce
          sensitivity to upstream changes.  However, a signature can be defined
          once and then reused by many modules.
      
          2. Signatures can be used to quickly check if a new upstream version
          is compatible, by typechecking just the signatures and not the actual
          modules.
      
          3. A signature can be used to mediate separate modular development,
          where the signature is used as a placeholder for functionality which
          is loaded in later.  (This is only half useful at the moment, since
          typechecking against signatures without implementations is not implemented
          in this patchset.)
      
      Unlike hs-boot files, hsig files impose no performance overhead.
      
      This patchset punts on the type class instances (and type families) problem:
      instances simply leak from the implementation to the signature.  You can
      explicitly specify what instances you expect to have, and those will be checked,
      but you may get more instances than you asked for.  Our eventual plan is
      to allow hiding instances, but to consider all transitively reachable instances
      when considering overlap and soundness.
      
      ToDo: signature merging: when a module is provided by multiple signatures
      for the same base implementation, we should not consider this ambiguous.
      
      ToDo: at the moment, signatures do not constitute use-sites, so if you
      write a signature for a deprecated function, you won't get a warning
      when you compile the signature.
      
      Future work: The ability to feed in shaping information so that we can take
      advantage of more type equalities than might be immediately evident.

      Python 3 support, second attempt (Trac #9184) · d576fc38
      Krzysztof Gogolewski authored
      Summary:
      This is a fixup of https://phabricator.haskell.org/D233
      
      The only difference is in findTFiles (first commit), which
      previously broke Windows runner; now I translated literally
      instead attempting to improve it, and checked it works.
      
      Test Plan:
      I used validate under 2,3 on Linux and under 2 on msys2.
      On Windows I've seen a large number of failures, but they don't
      seem to be connected with the patch.
