    1616 * '''External Core''' (output only) is working again, thanks to Tim Chevalier.
    1717
    18   * '''Haddock 2''' (see also #1964 (GHC.Prim), #2335 (build problem)).  (Ian: a few days.)
     18  * '''Haddock 2''' (see also #1964 (GHC.Prim), #2335 (build problem)).  ('''Ian''': a few days.)
    1919    * Build it with GHC (maybe ship it with GHC too)
    2020    * Documentation for GHC API done via Haddock 2
    2121
    22  * '''Unicode support for text I/O'''.  This means adding Unicode encoding/decoding for Text I/O handles.   (Simon M: a few days work.)
     22 * '''Unicode support for text I/O'''.  This means adding Unicode encoding/decoding for Text I/O handles.   ('''Simon M''': a few days work.)
    2323   * Consensus was that Text I/O should always use the current locale encoding. 
    2424   * You can elect to have no encoding by opening in binary mode, but that's all.
    2525
    26  * '''Extensible exceptions''', along the lines of Simon's paper [http://www.haskell.org/~simonmar/papers/ext-exceptions.pdf "An Extensible Dynamically-Typed Hierarchy of Exceptions"].  This is mainly a library change.  ''Simon Marlow''
     26 * '''Extensible exceptions''', along the lines of Simon's paper [http://www.haskell.org/~simonmar/papers/ext-exceptions.pdf "An Extensible Dynamically-Typed Hierarchy of Exceptions"].  This is mainly a library change.  ''Ian Lynagh'' is running a discussion, but we expect it to reach consensus in plenty of time for 6.10.
    2727
    2828 * '''Parallel garbage collection''' (see [http://research.microsoft.com/%7Esimonpj/papers/parallel-gc/index.htm Parallel generational-copying garbage collection with a block-structured heap]).  ''Simon Marlow''
    2929
    30  * '''Shared libraries''', as a result of Clemens Fruhwirth's Summer of Code project.  ''Simon Marlow''
     30 * '''Shared libraries''', as a result of Clemens Fruhwirth's Summer of Code project.  (#1876) ''Simon Marlow''
    3131   * Binaries get much smaller
    3232   * Compile a package on Windows to a DLL; it just works

    5555
    56   * shared libraries (#1876)
    57   * Haddock 2 (see also #1964 (GHC.Prim), #2335 (build problem))
    58     * Build with GHC (maybe ship it with GHC too)
    59     * Documentation for GHC API done via Haddock 2
