Given that it’s written by Marco, who did most of the recent development
with haskell-devscripts, this is indeed pretty accurate. (I mostly copy
from one of his packages, which is, in the end, the same thing).

I think the haskell-utils part of that page can be removed.

It’s still open. Nobody has wildly opposed either git or darcs, just
preferences were expressed. Given that pet.cgi exists for darcs now, but
not for git, I see an advantage there, but I’m not going to force
anyone. I think a consensus will be reached in a short time just by
seeing which one is used more actively.

Ketil, please remember that there is not only the question of how to
package a library, but also whether; not everything on hackage should
also be in Debian. For example the few lines of code in
http://hackage.haskell.org/package/higherorder are not worth a package
yet, at least not unless an important library/program depends on it. 

What do you plan to package?
