I am maintaing the haskelldb package and it is definitely alive and well. I
don't have a Debian install to test on, but I am glad to help get things
compiling. See my detailed answers below:

These are not maintained any more.

Yes, the haskelldb-hdbc is still maintained and will continue to be as much
as I am able. I belive I updated at least haskelldb-hdbc and
haskelldb-hdbc-postgres to work with the 2.0 release of HDBC.

Like I said, I don't have a Debian install readily accessible to build these
but I am glad to help. If need be, I am sure I can get a VM image and build
myself but finding the time coudl be hard.

against the latest haskell platform release.
