There are some other scripts that need to be in place. My timeline for
this is:

    * Release updated versions of cabal2arch and archlinux packages [done]
    * GHC 6.12.3 into extra
    * Release all additional scripts (i.e. for generating
          http://www.galois.com/~dons/arch-haskell-status.html , and process for updating.
    * Create group account.
    * Hand over maintainership for packages.
