The recently-formed haskell.org[1] committee is responsible for the server.

We currently only use plugins distributed with debian by default +
very small modifications for backwards compatibility (the <hask> and
<haskell> tags).  The reasoning is that those will be updated
automatically when the server is upgraded.

I think adding new extensions would be possible if they are considered
useful enough.  Running Haskell code has some security implications,
so that'll require a good argument for why it's safe.
