All the haskell packages in [extra] and [community] are missing haddock-generated documentation. Not only would it be very useful to have documentation for these packages, it would also "even out" the situation a bit:

- GHC is shipped with documentation
- All AUR packages are built with documentation by default

There is also at least one very useful programming tool which depends on local documentation: haskell-mode for vim.

I see there is little to nothing progress on this very annoying problem, though it is not very difficult - just rerunning cabal2arch on the same .cabal files and uploading new *.tar.gz files should be enough. What is supposed to do?
