even when you are not a DD, you maintain package, you’ll just need
someone to sponsor your uploads. Even better, if you want, you can get
an account on alioth.debian.org and join the pkg-haskell team. We are
trying to get a consistent grip on haskell packages, and additional
manpower is always welcome. Just join debian-haskell@lists.debian.org to
stay up-to-date what’s happening.

Trent, I see that you are not yet in the pkg-haskell team. Do you want
to join? It would make it easier for you to work on darcs’ dependencies
when needed.

highlighting-kate is already packaged, but is in a similar bad condition
than pandoc.
