Great. In that case, request membership via alioth and have a look at n
especially http://wiki.debian.org/Haskell/CollabMaint/Processes and
http://wiki.debian.org/Haskell/CollabMaint/DarcsBasic out to be

I’d also expect you to subscribe to d-haskell (and will stop CC’ing you

You can then upload your packaging via Darcs, tag it as ready to upload
(by setting distribution to unstable) and tell us about it, then we will
sponsor the upload.

Hmm, ok. But other bindings work with cabal, e.g. gtk2hs? I’d prefer to
have things on hackage, as it makes maintenance easier for us, e.g.
looking for new versions. But as long as you create a suitable watch
file for the other location, that is ok as well.
