The online User's Guide has not yet been updated.  (Actually, none of
the GHC 7 docs appear to be on yet.)  I thought that the
User's Guide shipped with the Cabal library, but I just checked and
that is not the case.  At the moment, it appears that the only way to
get the most recent User's Guide is to check out a development version
of Cabal [1].

Duncan, I am CC'ing you to make sure you are aware of the situation.
Is there another source for the User's Guide?
