IMO, mirroring is orthogonal to that, too.

Do you mean a two-way sync here?  I think it'd be way easier to just set
up a slave repo using rsync, and let people edit their .cabal/configs.
But I don't really know the internals, perhaps there are implementation
details of cabal or hackage that complicates this?

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
