on top of this, [extra] ships parallel-220.127.116.11, which is way ahead of
the version haskell-platform requires, namely parallel-18.104.22.168.
There are other problems in [extra] (such as FS#21615 and FS#21613), all
of which have been reported a while ago, but still there seems to be no
discernible progress towards remedying the situation. This is really
frustrating. I thought Remy volunteered to help maintaining [extra]
precisely to avoid these kind of problems. So what is going on? What is
the point of me bothering to maintain AUR, if our base packages in
[extra] are outright broken for extended periods of time?
