Well, now I know what happened:

Magnus Therning has by mistake broken the x86_64 repository ... again.
Instead of correcting the error, though, he tried to pretend that
nothing happened and that nothing needs to be done about it. (See
<https://github.com/archhaskell/habs/issues/43/> for further details.) I
didn't like that, so I committed a fix to HABS that bumped all $pkgrels
in order to trigger a re-build. Now, unfortunately, that commit brought
attention to the fact that Magnus has made a mistake -- a situation he
very much wanted to avoid, so he removed my commit from the history of
the HABS repository. He didn't revert it -- he actually overwrote the
repository's current HEAD to make the commit invisible. Furthermore,
Magnus has revoked my access to all ArchHaskell repositories on Github.
