Would it be intended that every Haskell-related project is hosted under 
haskell.org?  This might be not so nice.  And it might be not so nice if most 
Haskell-related projects are hosted under haskell.org so that potential users 
might only look under haskell.org for projects and miss those that are hosted 

Just thinking...

Best wishes,
