    66 * [http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/GHC Documentation].  This is the ''user'' documentation, aimed at people who use GHC, but don't care how it works.  It's on the Haskell Wiki (powered by MediaWiki), and we strongly encourage people to edit and improve it.

    8  * [http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc Developers].  This link takes you to the home page for ''developers''; that is, people interested in hacking on GHC itself (i.e. you).  It's a Wiki too, but powered by Trac, and includes bug-tracking etc.

    1010 * [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/download.html Download].  At any moment, GHC has a '''STABLE branch''' and the '''HEAD''', both of which you can download from this page.[[BR]][[BR]] 
     
    1212   * The HEAD is simply the latest, greatest version that we are working on; it may be broken on any given day, although you are encouraged not to break it gratuitiously.  The HEAD has an odd version numbers (e.g 6.5, 6.7).  Every night we build the HEAD, and dump the result on the download site under "Development snapshots", with a version number that encodes the date (e..g 6.5.20060831).

    14    A very useful link on the download page is the documentation for the HEAD (under Development snapshots). 
     14   A very useful link on the download page is the [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/dist/current/docs/ documentation for the HEAD] (under Development snapshots).  Useful because typesetting the documentation uses DocBook, which easy to install on every platform.
