this is really good news. IMHO, the name of the VHOST is a secondary issue.
We don't need to decide that until our binary repository is in shape for
public usage. Personally, I'd like something along the lines of
haskell.archlinux.org or archlinux.haskell.org, but I don't feel strongly
about it.

How would that server be accessed? What kind of information does Kaiting
need to set-up an user account?

Take care,
