How about comments? Using e.g. disqus, it's a minimal administrative
overhead, and provide user-contributed information without any
artificial limitations or ambiguity.
For instance, I recently updated a library to work with newer
compilers, and sent the patches to the previous maintainer. He
suggested I just upload it to Hackage, but this is not allowed anymore,
and I haven't heard from him since. If I could add a comment, I could
at least point to my repository with an updated library version until
this can be resolved.
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
