    2020== Summary ==
    2121
     22Change the way fixity resolution is specified in the Report.  Remove fixity resolution from the context-free grammar, and specify it separately.  This does change the syntax slightly by eliminating some impossible-to-parse-correctly cases, but in practice all existing compilers already implement the proposed syntax, not the current syntax.

    2626This is a proposal that doesn't affect anything except the presentation of the report, because all Haskell implementations currently do it this way anyway.  There are some legal Haskell programs, according to the report, that aren't accepted by current implementations (see below).  I propose we make the language specification match the implementations.
