I've now moved this, and updated it to work together with [testing].
The new repo is

Server = http://xsounds.org/~haskell/ghc74

To use it I'd recommend the following procedure:

0. Remove all haskell packages 'pacman -Rncs ghc'
1. Add [testing] to /etc/pacman.conf
2. Run 'pacman -Sy
3. Install ghc from testing 'pacman -S testing/ghc'
4. Remove [testing] from /etc/pacman.conf
5. Add [ghc74] to /etc/pacman.conf
6. Run 'pacman -Sy
7. Re-install the haskell packages you want

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid with
millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural
integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
