half as bad as it looked, Raúl took care of all packages but Agda, which
has an upstream release that is compatible with the new haskell-src-exts
package. Iain, as always, given that Agda is not with the other DHG
packages, can you do the upload?

I am always reluctant to put this in the Architecture field, as it is
not the actual code that does not work on the architecture, it is just
Debian’s buildds which, for some reason, don’t cope with it... 

At least on sparc, a giveback could work (it has worked in the past), so
I’ve just tried that.

Thanks; shouldn’t be the case here, though.
