I’m wondering why you didn’t add the Debian Haskell Group as the
maintainer? But I see you are not yet in the alioth group.

Do you want to take part in the DHG? If so, please tell John your alioth
login name, so that he can add you.

Besides that, I’d add a versioned Build-Dependency on
ghc6 (>= 6.10.3-3), so that the package is not tried on an architecture
where the new ghc6 is not yet built (ia64 at the moment). Same wold
apply for libghc6-*-dev-packages in the dependency, but it seems that
hscolour does not have any.

Also, you are adding a self-Build-Depenency to it. It would be good to
avoid that. Can you modify the build process that it uses the binary it
just generated to create libghc6-hscolour-doc? If that’s too hard, then
maybe disable the use of hscolor for that package, by defining ifndef
at the top of debian/rules.
