Yes, these arch:all package will not be installable without ghc-haddock,
but AFAIK, this is ok.

haskell-dummy has the same version in testing as in unstable; nothing
needs to migrate there, I think.

About agda, you are right; I forgot that it also builds a haskell
library, so it is tied into the transition.

Thanks for pointing that out. Both agda and haskell-shakespeare need to
be removed on powerpc, where we stopped supporting packages that require
Template Haskell. I’ll file the removal bugs right awaay.

Do you mean removed from testing?

Hmm, interesting; not what I expected, but no reason to complain.
