For a start, both of the packages are built from the same source, so
it's no wonder that neither of them is available. :)
The problem seems to be here that xmonad-contrib was tried to get built
before xmonad was finished building - and thus did run into an error
installing its build-dependencies.
it is built everywhere besides mips and mipsel, so a give-back of
xmonard-contrib should get it building properly.
I sent the following two lines to #debian-buildd on OFTC (with the
notice that it's for the experimental buildd network):
gb xmonad-contrib_0.8-5~bpo50+1 . amd64 arm armel powerpc s390 sparc
dw xmonad-contrib_0.8-5~bpo50+1 . mips mipsel . -m 'libghc6-xmonad-prof (>= 0.8)'
Hopefully it will get picked up soonishly.
So long. :)
