    33== Introduction == 
     4 
    45The 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.

    6 == How to get involved == 
     7== Haskell' == 
    78 
    8 Although there is a Haskell Prime "committee", in the interests of getting decisions made, we'd like to encourage you to get involved in the design of Haskell Prime.  Here are some CoordinationTools we're using: 
    9  1. Send email to [mailto:[email protected] [email protected]], our MailingList. 
    10  1. Read the Wiki.  It's read-only, but please send thoughts and suggestions to someone on the [wiki:Committee committee] or to the [wiki:MailingLists mailing list]. 
    11  1. Email a [wiki:Committee committee member] directly. Email [mailto:[email protected] Isaac Jones] if you don't know who else to write to. 
    12  
    13 == The Committee's Mission == 
    14 [wiki:Haskell'] will be a conservative refinement of Haskell 98.  It will be the work of this committee to adopt a set of language extensions and modifications and to standardize a new set of libraries. 
     9[wiki:Haskell'] will be a conservative refinement of Haskell 98.  It will be the work of this [wiki:Committee committee] to adopt a set of language extensions and modifications and to standardize a new set of libraries. 
    1510 
    1611We will strive to only include tried-and-true language features, and to define them at least as rigorously as Haskell 98 was defined. This standard will reflect the realities of developing practical applications in the Haskell language.  We will work closely with the rest of the Haskell community to create this standard. 
    1712 
    18 == Infrastructure == 
     13== Resources == 
    1914 
    20  * [wiki:Haskell' Haskell'] 
     15These are the resources that the community and committee are using during development of [wiki:Haskell']. 
     16 
     17 * The [wiki:MailingList haskell-prime mailing list]: all technical discussion will take place here, or (if other meetings take place) be reported here. Anyone can subscribe, and any subscriber can post questions and comments, and participate in discussions. Anyone can read the list archives.  
     18 
     19 * This wiki / issue tracking system: to document consensus and to track ongoing tasks. This system is publicly readable, but only committee writable so that we may present it as the "official" output of the committee. If you ever feel that the wiki is not accurate as to the consensus, please alert the [wiki:Committee]! 
     20 
     21 * The [wiki:SourceCode haskell-prime code repository]: a darcs repository for experiments, proposed libraries,and complex examples. [http://www.darcs.net darcs] is a decentralized system, so anyone can use it, but patches should be sent to [mailto:[email protected] Isaac Jones].

     23== Administrative details == 
     24 
     25 * The [wiki:Haskell' Haskell'] name 
    2126 * The general purpose of our work is described in our MissionStatement. 
    2227 * [wiki:Committee The Haskell' Committee] 
    23  * CoordinationTools 
    24     * The MailingList 
    25     * The SourceCode repository 
    26     * This wiki! 
    2728 * ToolSupport for syntactic change 
    2829 * SourceCode
