I've just posted a status update to the cabal-dev mailing list:

Cabal/cabal-install 1.24 will include Duncan's no-reinstall work in
some form (likely a "technical preview"). The Cabal library parts have
just been merged. Gershom's minimal HP patch is already in Cabal

It's possible that cabal-install 1.24 will not be released
simultaneously with Cabal 1.24, so the HP 8 release may also be
delayed a little bit.
