[arch-haskell] Broken dependencies for happstack, how can I help again?

Hello everybody,

some time ago I helped adding some package in the repo, and was just
starting to understand how to do this when Peter dropped maintaining the
repo in favour of Magnus. Magnus introduced this new method with cblrepo,
that (it seems to me) automate the updating process, so the group didn't
need my work for updating "manually" the packages.

Unfortunately today pacman rejected to update my system because
happstack-server now need an old version of a package already present.
  haskell-happstack-server: require haskell-hslogger=1.1.0 (in community
there's 1.1.5)

Why the requiring a fixed version, when the cabal file  doesn't? Is there a
way to solve the problem without modifying manually the PKGBUILD? If I do
modify the PKGBUILD manually how can I make this available to the repo?

I also would like to help adding some more package, but I still don't know
how to do this with cblrepo.

Thanks for your work, I hope this can help.
