I hereby offer a portion of my time.
It would be economical for you and Magnus to prioritise making it easy for
me (and other newcomers) to spend their time usefully on the arch-haskell
That means: write down the immediate next steps in a public prominent place
(I suggest the Arch Haskell page on the Arch Linux wiki), and, as possible
(I realise you are busy!), spend time replying to the mailing list (not
doing so badly so far) and to people on the IRC channel.

I am specifically interested in knowing more about the multi-distro
approach, whereby many people can maintain small pieces of arch-haskell but
it can still be collected into one big repo to point pacman at.
Is there a quick way to generate the list of packages on hackage that are
not yet packaged for Arch?
I would like to try, for example, taking the first (or most interesting) 10
packages on that list, packaging them and making them into my repo, then
connecting it up to the arch-haskell ecosystem.

I hereby offer my resources to "compile all pakages" on the condition that
[haskell] gets better quicker, and until we sort out a better way to make
it better (e.g. the distributed approach).
