[haskell] unofficial repo has haskell-pandoc 1.11.1-16.

The unmaintained packages uploaded by arch-haskell guys to the AUR
have been removed a couple months ago

Do you want to keep the haskell packages you dropped to the AUR in the
AUR because it makes it easier to move them to the official repos some
time down the road or ...?
Maybe the unofficial repo is enough and there's no need for the AUR packages?
