Use git version of Cabal to build stack / release version? #3550
Released Cabal has a bug that makes it so that
Noted by phadej here:
Once #3593 is merged in, I believe this bug will only strike when we're using pvp-bounds. We already have a mounting list of concerns around pvp-bounds, such as potentially being out-of-date with the new "soft bound" changes to the PVP. Given all of this, my recommendation is to add some comments to the release notes and documentation explaining that, due to issues with Cabal, pvp-bounds will likely not work, and recommend against using them. I don't believe it's wise for us to release Stack with an unofficial version of Cabal, or start copy-pasting code to work around Cabal bugs unless we absolutely have to.
