I'm not certain that this is the case, honestly. It's very close, to be 
sure, but there are enough rough edges and possible concerns that I 
think it'll need some polishing before it's ready for full use.

At any rate, I had independently decided to start tinkering with the 
Hackage 2 codebase after being frustrated at the lack of progress. I 
have a publicly-accessible instance running at 
http://hackage2.uptoisomorphism.net:8080/ that's currently pretty empty, 
but I'll be doing at least a partial mirror of Hackage onto it in the 
near future as well as some hacking on the code. Feel free to check it 
out but please don't do anything too abusive to the server.

I've also uploaded the hackage2 source to my GitHub at the urging of 
people on IRC, which should make it easier for more people to get the 
code and hack on it if they feel inspired: 

- C.
