This is not what I meant.

> Git-annex for instance requires a lot of dependencies which make it quite tricky to build from source. I had much luck with it by just using the provided binary tar. For the record, at some point, various aur package were failing to bring a working git-annex because of some sort of incompatibilities with the arch curl system version (to my knowledge the provided [haskell-web] package has never work).

I would like to see as many of git-annex/notmuch-web/... dependencies
supported in either [haskell-core] or repos similar to [haskell-web].
For instance all git-annex dependencies are supported by Debian (yes the
developer is a Debian packager).

What should be aimed at, IMHO is to provide a larger set of packages at
a smaller cost or at least better distributed.
