Where is the CABAL file for haskell-platform 2010.2.0.0?

(Currently it is offline...) but my understanding is that
2011.1.0.0 is a beta release currently based on ghc-7.0.1
(ie what is currently in darcs), whereas 2011.2.0.0 will be a stable
release (based on ghc-7.0.2 or later).

Though I agree it is a little confusing listing the two
releases together though I guess the thinking was that
they are both part of the HP 2011 process.

It would be nice to see an updated schedule anyway.

Yes it would be nice to have versions of the released .cabal files
available online somewhere for reference.  In fact it don't really
understand why haskell-platform releases can't live on hackage
(possibly with some exception in cabal-install, etc if necessary).
