Andrew, I just wanted to let you know that Cabal/cabal-install/hackage
has a bug tracker:


We rely on users reporting bugs so that we know there is anything
wrong. There is a guest account so that anyone can file tickets. There
is a search feature to see if anyone has reported a similar problem
previously (though we prefer getting duplicates than no reports at
all). For bugs that really annoy you, you can add your email address
to the 'cc list so that you get notified when the ticket is updated.
That also counts as a "vote" for that ticket, we take that into
account when prioritising things.
