Thank you for all the work you have done, and good luck on
your future endeavours. :)


Excerpts from Ian Lynagh's message of Thu Jul 18 07:44:07 -0700 2013:
> 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
