Thanks for filing this bugreport.

Most likely this is the fault of the package delivering the CDBS snippet 
that you use.

Unfortunately - and confusing for you as user - the Haskell developers 
chose to not cooporate directly with the CDBS maintainers in maintaining 
a snippet for their needs but felt it better to maintain it on their 
own. :-(

Hereby reassigned to haskell-devscripts providing the CDBS snippet 

Kind regards,

   - Jonas
