Not sure if you figured (you already reverted the change 
in https://github.com/agocorona/transient-universe/pull/16), but the key 
error is

cabal: src/client/Transient/Move/Services/MonitorService.hs: does not exist

and the error message is correct. The tricky bit is that this only fails 
when you run cabal sdist, not in the normal workflow—I remember being hit 
by this at some point.

IIUC you're using the Travis config stack suggests (which in turn comes 
HVR's config)—maybe that needs more docs to help troubleshooting? That's 
full of subtleties that you don't learn by copy-pasting it.
