    7 volunteers to help with the next Haskell standard.  A brave group has 
    8 spoken up, and we've organized ourselves into a committee in order to 
    9 coordinate the community's work.  It will be the committee's task to 
    10 bring together the very best ideas and work of the broader community 
    11 in an "open-source" way, and to fill in any gaps in order to make 
    12 Haskell' as coherent and elegant as Haskell 98.

    1416Our task is broadly defined by our mission statement: 
    15     The Haskell programming language is more-or-less divided into two "branches".  The Haskell 98 standard is the "stable" branch of the language, and that has been a big success.  A lot of progress has been made over the last few years in the "research" branch of the Haskell language.  It is constantly advancing, and we feel that it is time for a new standard which reflects those advancements.
