[arch-haskell] how can I help?

My initial goal was trying to find an official-ish way to install vim plugins
for Haskell, but poking around the mailing list and the git issue tracker(s),
I get the impression that may be getting ahead of myself.  So I ask: how can I
help?  I haven't found much documentation, and based on implications in the
mailing list archives, it seems that the Haskell Package Guidelines [1] wiki
page is out of date.  Also, the habs README [2] says that current processes
don't support providing ideal coverage of hackageDB.

I hereby offer to organize and document a process for the Haskell Arch Linux
repository.  That said, if there are other things you think are higher
priority, please let me know and I'll see what I can do.  My opinion is that
documentation is the single most important thing to encourage participation
and contribution.  One caveat, though: I'm not a Haskell expert, and have
essentially no experience with cabal, so I might need some hand-holding, but
hopefully it will be worth it.

If the powers-that-be could weigh in, I'd appreciate it.  Thanks!
