I have been converting all my Haskell packages to be team-maintained
with Git in the course of normal maintenance (when I need to make an
upload, if it isn't team-maintained, I make it so.)

My fall/early winter is extremely time-constrained due to various events
at work and at home, so this sadly hasn't progressed as far as I'd have

I would be happy, obviously, for people to fix the team-maintained
packages before I get to them.

As for the other packages, obviously it is my intent to get them
team-maintained but I want to be careful to do so in a way that it
doesn't complicate my usual development process with my git tree.
Generally that means copying the master branch to one named upstream.
Then delete debian/ in upstream, git checkout master, git merge -s ours
upstream, and then inject this into a repo on alioth.  If somebody else
wants to try this for my other Haskell packages, feel free, and check in
with me after you've done the first so I can make sure it looks good.
