Hi Peter,

I can see that three out of the five packages you list were last
updated in May and are no longer marked out-of-date. This means that
for those three packages at least, there's no reason for disowning.

Also, you mention that you were referred to the Arch-Haskell mailing
list. If you posted there, can you provide a link to your opening
message? I'd be interested to see what replies you got.

I apologize if your requests seem to go unfulfilled, but --to me at
least-- the situation with arch-haskell and the AUR is a bit unclear,
so I'm not sure what action should be taken.
