This is the main page for the Haskell/OpenSPARC project.
About the project
It is a joint project between Sun Microsystems and the Haskell.org community. Ben Lippmeier will spend three months hacking on GHC to make it perform well on the latest multi-core OpenSPARC chips. Sun has provided the funding for Ben to work on this full time and has donated a powerful SPARC server for him and the rest of us to use.
Ben is working with Roman Leshchinskiy as a mentor and Darryl Gove as an adviser. Roman works on Data Parallel Haskell at UNSW and Darryl is a senior staff engineer in the SPARC compiler team at Sun.
If you want to follow the progress we will be using the ghc development mailing list and this wiki.
