I do not see why but anyway mailing list is fine as well.

I agree AUR is not a good fit for archhaskell.

There is two kind of votes. The kind of votes we find on AUR and will find
on Hackage, these are permanent and might not be completely useful
in the long run. The other kind of votes I was referring to is more one
periodic basis. Where we ask, say on the mailing list, for users to vote
for packages from Hackage. Then we can use this info to both remove
packages and add new ones.
