* even if it would mean downgrading 6.12.1 to 6.10.4
* the binary version should be the stable one, if somebody
wants to be very up to date, then aur is for him/her
It would be also good to have the latest ghc package in aur which
sometimes/often would be newer than the binary package in extra.
Having more repositories for haskell packages (based on which
ghc version they depend on) looks nice but I personally do not
really care. Extra and aur sounds good enough.
I like the idea that all haskell package dependencies will be in the
provides list (even when there are some tools (yaourt) which do
not support it now - the bug should be fixed where it is (yaourt)).
Thanks for working on this,
