Haskell Platform appears to be the face of haskell. This appearance
could be wrong, but it's certainly the most well-designed and
professional appearing haskell page I'd seen.

So: claiming a release, then not hitting it, then not even getting
around to retracting the claim, for months on end.  If that's the peak
performance of the haskell bunch putting on their best PR face, then
that suggests the community is moribund.

 From that PR look, there's no way to distinguish between that
impression and (say) a thriving collection of frequently maintained
codebases.  The latter seems closer to correct.

That's why people care about it.
