As discussed in the thread the documentation of GHC.Conc.throwTo is not 100% clear on the provided atomicity guarantees.

In I proposed a patch for said documentation but it seems to have slipped through the cracks. Can somebody please have a look and - hopefully - apply it?

  • Milestone set to 7.8.1
  • Status changed from new to patch

I'll add it to Austin's patch queue, by changing the status to 'please review' (you can do this too). As you discovered, if there isn't a ticket, it's easily lost.
