I'm happy to maintain it as part of the Haskell packaging team. I've
got experience as a Haskell programmer and as a Debian developer, but
have never done any Haskell packaging.

I've used it for a couple of personal projects, and have found it to
work quite well. I've also got a couple of local patches that I am
hoping to submit upstream - mostly tests.
