I noticed your request to orphan haskell-numeric-prelude too. Have you contacted
Arch Haskell (i.e. Don Stewart) about those packages?

I'm reluctant to orphan packages from the Arch Haskell group because it's an
"official" group tasked with managing Haskell packages globally across the
repos and the AUR.

At the same time, I know that Don is often too busy to deal with issues and
that this causes problems for many users because they have to wait for him to
get around to running global scripts, which he often postpones for months at a
time. I fully understand how frustrating that must be.

Personally I think that Arch Haskell should create it's own repo and ABS tree.
In fact, I'll propose that on the arch-haskell list right now.
