As far as the arch-haskell team is concerned *all* packages uploaded
by the user arch-haskell and currently unmaintained can be removed
from AUR.

Personally I'd even argue they should be removed since I think they're
almost all out-of-date, and I'm guessing only a small minority of them
still build.  If no one has adopted the packages during that year or
so since arch-haskell (the team) stopped using AUR then they should be
removed until someone who cares surfaces and re-adds them.
