    2222 * '''Shared libraries''': we intend to ship with shared library support on at  
    23  least x86/Linux and x86-64/Linux.  There are various tasks remaining to  
    24  do here - Duncan, can we have a summary? 
     23 least x86/Linux and x86-64/Linux.  This is almost done, the remaining tasks are: 
     24   * Turn on `--enable-shared` on Linux x86/x86-64 platforms by default, to shake out as-yet detected bugs. We want this to be the default for ghc-6.12. 
     25   * Change where the RTS libs are stored and use the `-rpath` to select one at exe link time. Then link all shared libs to the rts (without specifying an rpath). 
     26   * Testing testing testing. Try building a subset of hackage using cabal and shared libs. See what fails.

    2628 * '''Data Parallel Haskell'''.  Manuel, can you comment on the state of play?
