I did also mine, but according my haskell knowledge, I'd better to have a look 
to already existing project.

I am myself a Mandriva contributor, and I started to package some haskell 
module, and plan to increase the count.

But if all thoses project want to have a sex appeal, they should be 
configurable per distribution to apply their policy.

For example, at mandriva our rpm are in svn, the spec is generated once, and 
then update, like in many distribution, the official "Group" list differ, and 
finally we all use macros.

Hit me if you want to know how to improve them to make them really usefull.

Such project are a good idea anyway.
