There was a recent Arch-Haskell thread about dumping most of AUR
Haskell packages:

As an end user, I effectively ignore the official Arch Haskell
packages as they are so far out of date. I'm also now trying to
disregard most of the AUR since I came across that thread. Haskell is
starting to feel fragile on Arch.

What about moving *all* Haskell related packages to the Haskell Arch
repo? All the Haskell Platform stuff, alex, happy, etc.
