directory-126.96.36.199/188.8.131.52 are broken
I would not release GHC-8.10.1 with that
directory version, as it's subtly breaks stuff and even not into "let's make it as in spec" direction.
Neither should GHC-8.8.2 be using
directory-184.108.40.206; that's again subtle and breaking change.
EDIT: it seems that breakage is made arlready in 220.127.116.11 (patch release :( ), which is what GHC-8.8.1 bundles. crap. Let's fix that for 8.8.2 / 8.10.1
