Rémy & Vesa,

I've just spent some time working out whether we can upgrade yesod in
ArchHaskell or not.  Currently we can not, and it comes down to two

- dbus-core (in ArchHaskell so I won't discuss it more here)
- text (in [extra])

yesod has a few dependencies that require text==0.11.*.  The version
in [extra] is  Is there any chance of getting an upgrade to
text in the near future?

I noticed that there is a PKGBUILD for in ABS already, but it
requires GHC 7.  It does however compile with GHC6 with the obvious
minor modifications.  It looks like there are not packages in [extra]
or [community] that depend on text (according to [1]).
