I know it is late, and so I've done some preliminary version sleuthing....
Here's my proposal for HP 2013.4.0.0. I know this e-mail's is long - but
hoping to hear from all relevant parties soon.

*GHC 7.6.3* -- this is a compiler bump, but all the included packages
remain at the same version as 2013.2.0.0

*Packages with no changes:*
        fgl, haskell-src, html, HTTP, HUnit,
        mtl, parsec, QuickCheck, random,
        regex-base, regex-compat, regex-posix,
        split, stm, text, transformers,
        xhtml, zlib

*Packages with minor version bumps:*
*I'll advance these automatically this time - no need for maintainer input*
        cgi: 3001.1.7.5 → 3001.1.8.4
        network: →
        parallel: →
        syb: 0.4.0 → 0.4.1
        unordered-containers: →
        vector: →
        primitive: →

*Packages with major version bumps:*
*I'd like to get confirmation from the maintainers of these packages that
this bump is "the right thing to do". The bump should ideally only add API,
and not orphan any program that used to compile under the HP - at least not
without a good reason.*
        case-insensitive: →
        hashable: →

        GLUT: →
        GLURaw: →
        OpenGL: →
        OpenGLRaw: →

        alex: 3.0.5 → 3.1.0
        happy: 1.18.10 → 1.19.0

*New Packages:*
*There was prior discussion on the libraries mailing list, and generally
all around resounding "YES!" for including aeson.*
*I think we should include it. I'm looking for confirmation from the
maintainer that this is the right version to include.*

*The Cabal 1.18 release was a major new release, including the very very
useful sandbox feature. This would require shipping a different Cabal lib
than the version shipped with the included GHC. I'm not sure of the
implications of doing this - in particular, whether we would have to ship
two Cabal packages or just the later.*
        Cabal: 1.16.0 →
        cabal-install: →

What do you all think?
