Yes, I have received the passwords, and yes I intend to share them with others.

I'm still not sure exactly *how* to do this though.  So far my
concentration has been on getting some infrastructure in place:

• archhaskell as organisation on github
• getting all the source packages into a git repo in some sane layout
(see my email from earlier today)
• putting up the source for archlinus and cabal2arch on github

Currently my thinking is that I'll share passwords with people who get
added to the github organisation... but that just shifts the problem
one step, as I still haven't decided what criteria to use for adding
people there. :-)  All suggestions are welcome!

Hmm, good questions indeed.  Please go ahead and add a comment to some
AUR package, then we ought to see if emails arrive as they should.
Otherwise I guess we'll have to work out how to relax the rules on the
list server.
