It seems that build logs are no longer linked from package pages (used to be linked from the built on entries, iirc), such as:
Also, the latest/ directory has doc/, but not logs/, while the archived versioned directory has both:
And, since I've more than once confused myself with that directory structure (package singular, but packages/archive plural? why the different prefix, where a version number postfix should be enough? why both http://hackage.haskell.org/package/haddock-2.8.0 and http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/haddock/2.8.0/?), could that be simplified (or, at least, a link be provided from the package-entry to the shadow-hierarchy packages/archive)?

The build logs haven't gone away: they were only ever linked from a package page for failed builds, and they're still there.
As for the directory layout, that's a bit of an accident from the directory I was given when I set up hackage in Jan 2007. When the new version arrives it may have a different layout.

It is useful to have direct access to the build logs. Even for successful builds, I occasionally use them to check for warnings/non-fatal errors, to see whether these appear only on my platform/setup, or also on hackage.
Same suggestion for any new version of hackage.
This isn't a Cabal issue.
