Hi Jonas,

Sorry about the delay. In my version of haskell-src-meta I basically
replaced the entire Language.Haskell.TH.Instances.Lift module with
derivations from the th-lift package whose latest version currently
doesn't build [1]. I had been in contact with the maintainer of the
package who has prepared a version 0.5 and was waiting for them to
upload it so that I could use it as a dependency, but I haven't heard
from them in a week or so. I'll try emailing them again, and as soon
as 0.5 is on hackage I will go ahead with my upload.

I suppose since there's no reason why I deserve maintainership more
than you you could just go ahead and upload your version instead. You
can see exactly what I've done at my github repository [2].
