Hi Ricardo,

Yes, we could have a repo anywhere, but what (at least) I was getting at was 
having some CI support to build Haskell packages to find any breakage. Even 
without being on the main repo could we do that? Changes I've made locally and 
packages I've tried to add (which might need version bumps of others) lead to a 
ton of compile time.

I'm pretty confident my build system patch 
works well as far as I've tested it. However, for things like GHC, that would 
require a lot of compile time and package updates everywhere I think, and I 
personally don't have the resources/time to do that.

We could at least get a mirror from core-updates(?) to base off of and add some 
patches for individual testing. Maybe anyone who wants to lead a GHC update can 
weigh in on resources needed to make it doable (as that I would imagine needs 
the most time to do)?
