darcs.haskell.org is physically located at, and run by, the kind folks at 
Galois.  We do give out accounts to people for hosting their darcs repositories, 
but we're currently looking for a better way to do this.

The organisation of the repos is largely accidental: we initially put all the 
packages that came with GHC under packages/, and then various other library 
repositories have been created at the top level.
