I'll be on it by the end of this week when my vacation ends.

It always does, thanks for volunteering :)

Here's a tasklist:

1) bump ghc to 6.12.3, build & install
2) bump all the dependencies in haskell-platform package to match the new spec
3) rebuild all haskell-platform dependencies
4) rebuild rest of the binary packages we provide in extra and community
5) upload the whole set to testing, community-testing
6) test
7) move from testing to extra, community

Stages 1-4 can be done, more or less, without dev privileges.
