Wiki Guidelines

See also

Otherwise, some guidelines to keep in mind:

The wiki

No Discussion on the Wiki! Keep discussion on the mailing list and use the wiki to document consensus and pros & cons. It is just fine to have conflicting points of view on the wiki, but no back-and-forth discussion (use the mailing list for that). Create "pros" and "cons" sections to document both sides of the discussion.

Tickets

We have been using tickets in the past to keep track of proposals, but that turned out to be rather cumbersome as there are many small issues. So now the status of each proposal is kept in the Haskell source file http://darcs.haskell.org/haskell-prime-status/status.hs which can be modified by committee members, and from which the wiki page Status is automatically generated.

Creating a proposal from a discussion

It is the responsibility of the committee to keep track of proposals discussed on the mailing list. If your idea has not been made into a fully-fledged proposal, please notify a committee member and ask them to do so.
