Taking over regex-base on Hackage

Troels Henriksen
regex-base is at the bottom of the regex-* package hierarchy and has
remarkably remained unchanged and working since the last release in
2010.  Alas, the MonadFail change in GHC 8.8 breaks it and the
maintainer, Christopher Kuklewicz, seems to have been absent for a
while.  Most of his other packages have long since been taken over by
others.  I would like to take over regex-base in order to patch it to
work with GHC 8.8.

Dan Burton
You might want to coordinate with the other proposed takeover.
