Subject: Haskell': Kicking off the process of defining the next Haskell standard.
let haskell' = succ haskell98 in
Announcing the Haskell' ("Haskell-Prime") process. A short time ago, I asked for volunteers to help with the next Haskell standard. A brave group has spoken up, and we've organized ourselves into a committee in order to coordinate the community's work. It will be the committee's task to bring together the very best ideas and work of the broader community in an "open-source" way, and to fill in any gaps in order to make Haskell' as coherent and elegant as Haskell 98.
Our task is broadly defined by our mission statement:
Your Haskell' Committee is as follows (slightly munged email addresses follow):
The editors are Isaac Jones and John Launchbury.
Feel free to contact any of us with any concerns or questions. If you don't know who to direct your questions to, email Isaac Jones ijones@….
Community involvement is vital to our task, and there will be a way for members of the community to make formal proposals. In the opening phases, please use these more informal resources to help us coordinate Haskell':
Please join us in making Haskell' a success.
p.s. Please feel free to forward this announcement to appropriate forums.
|#10||fixed||finalize mission statement||ijones||ijones|
Finalize a MissionStatement. Details may have to be worked out in future iterations.
The current mission statement may be OK for the committee, but it lacks background that the "general public" would be interested in. We should state the problem we're trying to solve and for the sake of who. That's the PublicMissionStatement and 75.
