thanks for the report.

We (the Debian Haskell Group) plan to follow Stackage LTS releases, and
have the haskell-platform Debian package not necessarily pull in the
precise versions of the platform, but just the choice of packages, in
the version that happens to be in the tracked LTS release.

Platform 7.10 requires GHC-7.10. This is ready in experimental, but by
the release team’s request we are (unfortunately) holding off the
upload to unstable at least until the current GCC transition is over.
