We're moving from a cathedral to a more distributed distribution model
for packages -- there's not really a 'whole source tree' for Haskell
anymore. However, for GHC and a base set of libraries, you can get 
that source directly by following these instructions:


Other libraries and tools can be picked up as needed. You'll find
links to these things on hackage, http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/pkg-list.html
and on haskell.org's libraries page.
