Does that mean you have access to the [archhaskell] repo on kiwilight?
You see, I still don't  :(

I'm all for sharing the responsibility of building the packages.
Since Peter stepped down I've been building both platforms, which is
*very* time consuming indeed.

I assume that by "upstream repository" you mean the [archhaskell]
repository, right?  In that case I agree with you 100%.

As I've mentioned both earlier here and in an earlier email to the
list I don't have enough access to the server hosting [archhaskell],
so for the time being I'm publishing the updated builds in a private
repository on the same server.
