Who maintains haskell-src?

On the side:

Arthur Baars has a full Haskell combinator parser. He made it work
with ghc and could bootstrap itself, i.e. it parses all the Ghc sources
and all of the fptools libraries. The speed of the parser seems
pretty good: ghc compiles itself and fptools about 5-10% slower
than with the standard haddock parser.

I am not sure if he reads this list so you might want to contact
him directly to get the sources.
