Thanks for involving me!

In what ways do current Pandoc block migration of ghc?

If a binNMU is not suitable, then is it possible to release the 
build-dependencies of Pandoc?

If that was done already, then I simply missed that (and would 
appreciate a notification next time, or a pointer what I should watch 
out for).

Thanks for asking :-)

I understand how to maintain single packages but not how to "steer the 
fleet" of (re)building all Haskell packages at once - and don't have 
the computing power to do so either.

Also, I like being able to maintain single packages: Feels more 
inclusive to me.

I have similar concerns for the Rust team, who did a similar approach - 
the approach taken by the Perl team is more to my liking.
