[Haskell-cafe] Experiences with cabal-install and Hackage

I've rather recently started to use cabal-install to install packages
from Hackage.  Unfortunately, so far many packages fail to install.  I
try to email authors/maintainers, but when I check build logs on
Hackage, I discover that some of these packages have failed building for
some time. 

Wouldn't it make sense to provide automated notification of the package
author when a package fails to build?  I certainly would like to know
about it, but of course, I never remember to check back to see.

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