The Glasgow Haskell Team

GHC is the result of many peoples hard work, and this page gives detail on exactly who is responsible for what in precise detail. For a more general overview of the responsibilities people take, see the Code Owners page.

Committers

The following page lists the current people who are allowed to commit to GHC, along with some details about the role they play and how to contact them. If you need guidance or help for your patches, this list may help you find out who you should contact, both on the mailing lists and here. It also gives some indication of where people are, which is convenient when you need to cross time-zone barriers, etc.

In order to see emails below, you must login.

(NB: GHC's development as a whole is not lead by any particular group, company, or individual. Affiliations below are listed for identification purposes only, and are optional; contributions do not necessarily represent the interests of employers or academic institutions.)

Becoming a committer

At a certain point after you've made enough contributions, the question of commit access inevitably arises. To be granted access, please contact Austin Seipp above. As it currently stands, SPJ will make the final call, and Austin will add your information once verified.

Generally, to be granted access, you should have worked with the developers, and contributed a reasonable amount to the project. 'Reasonable' varies from person to person - from big/small features, to bug fixes, to helping others, there is no end of things to do in the land of GHC. Simply use your good judgement to decide if you think you meet the criteria, propose, and we'll talk about it.

(In some cases, you may also be approached by an existing committer who's willing to represent you, which is great! You'll be contacted appropriately, then.)

Prior committers

This list people who have contributed wonderful things to GHC in the past, but are no longer actively working with us. After 1 year of no commits, we revoke peoples access and add them from the list above to this one. If you're one of these people, contact Austin and we can give access back to you.
