@unode Thanks for sending a fix for this.

However, it appears I was incorrect about putting pandoc in library depends. It should actually be in the executable depends section.

Here's what the .nix file looks like when using cabal2nix to generate it for pandoc-placetable with this PR:

{ mkDerivation, aeson, base, bytestring, explicit-exception
, http-conduit, pandoc, pandoc-types, spreadsheet, stdenv, text
, utf8-string
mkDerivation {
  pname = "pandoc-placetable";
  version = "0.5.1";
  sha256 = "22844b30fa5be4190e816de920d5bbbdccde18e4022c7927a97c4b83b0aed87d";
  configureFlags = [ "-finlineMarkdown" ];
  isLibrary = false;
  isExecutable = true;
  enableSeparateDataOutput = true;
  libraryHaskellDepends = [ pandoc ];
  executableHaskellDepends = [
    aeson base bytestring explicit-exception http-conduit pandoc-types
    spreadsheet text utf8-string
  homepage = "";
  description = "Pandoc filter to include CSV files";
  license = "GPL";

So it looks like it is working as expected, but pandoc needs to be in the executableHaskellDepends section.

I believe that the underlying issue causing the missing dependency was fixed by 650d530?

@peti I believe you're correct.

NixOS/nixpkgs#74050 removes pandoc-placetable from the list of broken packages in nixpkgs.

So I think this PR can be closed.
