No, I think these websites just haven't been moved, yet.
haskell.cs.yale.edu was the location of haskell.org before the move
and the content is therefore still there.  Only haskell.org now points
to the new server which does not host these sites.  The policy for the
new server is different, so they won't be hosted directly on the new
server.  The correct new location will be community.haskell.org.

However, we can create redirects, so the old links will still work.
The procedure for the site maintainers is therefore the same as
mentioned in the thread you linked:

  1. Get an account on community.haskell.org
  2. Copy site content over.
  3. Ask for a redirect from haskell.org/<project> to
community.haskell.org/<project> at http://community.haskell.org/admin/

Push the envelope. Watch it bend.
