    8 Announcing the Haskell' Committee.  A few weeks ago, I asked for
    9 volunteers to help form a committee for an effort to put together the
    10 next Haskell standard.  Our task is broadly defined by our mission
    11 statement:
     8Announcing the Haskell' process.  A short time ago, I asked for
     9volunteers to help with the next Haskell standard.  A brave group has
     10spoken up, and we've organized ourselves into a committee in order to
     11coordinate the community's work.  It will be the committee's task to
     12bring together the very best ideas and work of the broader community
     13in an "open-source" way, and to fill in any gaps in order to make
     14Haskell' as coherent and elegant as Haskell 98.

     16Our task is broadly defined by our mission statement:
    1217
    1318    Haskell' will be a conservative refinement of Haskell 98. It will
     
    1621    libraries.
    1722
    18     We will strive to only include tried-and-true language
    19     features. This standard will reflect the realities of developing
    20     practical applications in the Haskell language. We will work
    21     closely with the rest of the Haskell community to create this
    22     standard.
     23    We will strive to only include tried-and-true language features,
     24    and to define them at least as rigorously as Haskell 98 was
     25    defined. This standard will reflect the realities of developing
     26    practical applications in the Haskell language. We will work closely
     27    with the rest of the Haskell community to create this standard.

    51 The following resources are provided for the community and the
    52 committee to perform this work.
     55Feel free to contact any of us with any concerns or questions.  If you
     56don't know who to direct your questions to, email Isaac Jones
     57[email protected]
    5358
    54  * The Haskell-cafe mailing list for public technical discussion:
    55    http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/haskell-cafe
     59Community involvement is vital to our task, and there will be a way
     60for members of the community to make formal proposals.  In the opening
     61phases, however, please use these more informal resources to help us
     62coordinate Haskell':
    5663
    57  * A Haskell' mailing list, which is read-only for the public, but
    58    anyone can subscribe to read it, and anyone can access the
    59    archives.  This is only to keep list traffic manageable for the
    60    committee.  Many committee members read haskell-cafe, and Isaac
    61    will be sure to bring issues from the list to the committee where
    62    appropriate.  You can always email a committee member if you want
    63    to bring up an issue or make a proposal.  If you post to the
    64    mailing list, it'll be held for moderation, and Isaac may allow it
    65    through.  http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/haskell-prime
     64 * A Haskell' mailing list for discussion.  Open to anyone to
     65   subscribe and any subscriber can post questions and comments, and
     66   participate in discussions.
     67   http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/haskell-prime
    6668
    67  * A wiki / issue tracking system.  This system is publicly readable,
    68    but again, only committee writable.  This is actually just in order
    69    to keep spam off of the wiki.  If you want an account, please email
    70    Isaac Jones <[email protected]>.
     69 * A wiki / issue tracking system to document consensus and to track
     70   ongoing tasks.  This system is publicly readable, but only
     71   committee writable so that we may present it as the "official"
     72   output of the committee.  If you ever feel that the wiki is not
     73   accurate as to the consensus, please alert the committee!

    7275   FIX: See [ticket:12 ticket on wiki guidlines].
     
    7477 * A darcs code repository for experiments, proposed libraries,and
    7578   complex examples.  darcs is a decentralized system, so anyone can use
    76    it, but patches should be sent to Isaac Jones.
