Maybe the idea of having some data that is only useful if up-to-date
(where the VCS is) inside something that we want to be static (package
metadata) is bad design...

Anyways, we expect to do sourceful uploads of all Haskell packages when
we land GHC-7.10 in Debian, sometime the coming weeks. By that time, we
will update the VCS fields.

Speaking of which: Do you have any good suggestion about what the VCS
-Git field should actually say, given that we have one git repository
with packages in subdirectories?
