No answer. I guess my failed attempt at chivalrous-sounding wit killed the 
message. I'll rephrase:

Does the job consist of:
Maintaining an independent repository of Haskell packages configured and 
compiled for the current (probably also in-development) version of Ubuntu?
Getting (some of) these packages added into the distro itself?
Tracking bug reports, routing them upstream when appropriate?
Submitting patches upstream?

Is it something "anyone" can do or would one need "official" ties to Ubuntu 
(e.g a MOTU)?

Also, how much exposure to the packages' source would it imply? My employer is 
rather paranoid about its coders being "contaminated" by third-party code =P.

While I'm asking --- maybe we should target Debian first/also/instead?
