| Subject: Future plans
| Friends,
| For a number of reasons, I have decided to move on to new challenges,
| and so from the end of the month the GHC maintenance work will be taken
| over by other people within Well-Typed.
| I hope not to disappear completely, but in any case if there is anything
| you think only I might know, please tell me and I'll try to document it!
| A couple of topical items: First, I've written a brief summary of the
| GHC 7.8 release plans here:
|     http://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Status/GHC-7.8
| Please feel free to edit it if there's anything I've left out, or if
| there are any other errors.
| Second, there's been a bit of discussion recently about moving over to
| using git submodules for more repos, or using git subrepos instead, or
| merging some of our repos together. We didn't feel that there was a
| consensus on what to do, so we plan to do nothing for now, but this is
| an area that might want to be revisited after the 7.8 release.
| Finally, I would like to everyone at Well-Typed, the Simons, and too
| many other community members to list, for a fantastic seven years. It's
| been a pleasure working with you all, and I look forward to finding out
| where the future takes us.
| Thanks
| Ian
