Hmm, what in particular is missing? Cabal seems up-to-date (both and master
branches point to 09865f60caa55a7b02880f2a779c9dd8e1be5ac0). As does
containers (both point to 71c64747120c3cd1b91f06731167009b0e5b2454).

In general all of this should be reasonably automatic. However, when
upstreams push non-fast-forward updates to their branches a bit of
manual intervention is necessary; if in doubt just ask as you've done
