One of my beta testers just noticed something odd. At least one package, namely 'tagsoup', included in LTS Haskell 5.9-5.12, is listed on the website and is in the cabal.config files, but it is not being served by the Stackage package server (at least, not as part of the package index). Here is the package page:

However, if you specify LTS 5.9 to 5.12 as the resolver, `cabal install tagsoup` will fail with an error message claiming that the package does not exist. (Yes, this is assuming `cabal update` has been run.) To understand why that is happening, I manually grabbed

and the package is indeed not included in the index. This suggests that something is going wrong during index generation.

Does anybody have any idea what the underlying problem might be?

Good catch, thanks. I've made an update for this at:

The problem was that it was using the old 00-index.tar location, and therefore was missing some newer cabal files. Can you test again and confirm that things are fixed?

Thanks, Michael, for fixing this so quickly. It now works for me.
