For the moment you can always create a fork to share your patches with Remy
directly. There's no need to wait for an official repo.
This would take the place of the current habs repo. I think it's best to
create a new repo for it though, any suggestion for the name? Otherwise
likely to be archhaskell/habs2 :-)
Just let me know when you think there is a repo that is in good enough state
to make it official.

I thought this was dealt with automatically by cabal2arch. Is that
functionality not good enough to keep on using?

Excellent job on this. Now I just need to take a closer look at it. :-)
