An idea for improving workflow

I'm also a bit ignorant as to why there are two different repos. Indeed putting the testsuite into 
the same repo as GHC seems to be the best option, but I'm assuming that since the GHC team has 
placed these projects into separate repos there must be a Good Reason to do so. Or perhaps there 
is no such reason? I really don't know - I'm just observing what is going on on the list and I 
see that something definitely is wrong with the workflow.

Um... you don'?

That's what I'm doing. Not sure if there is an alternative.
