Are you uploading the source packages to AUR as well, or do you want
me to do it?

I'll tag them up as follows:

0.7.7 - https://github.com/archhaskell/cabal2arch/commit/02f5bec78dfd415db8bca5215b7526558e42e20a
0.3.6 - https://github.com/archhaskell/archlinux/commit/b27f8e880fa884d03f2b26f79f3b5aae34a5a95e

No changes to the CABAL files are necessary, only tagging in git.

Is that all right?
