Thanks for all your work on GHC. I hope to still see you around.

> A couple of topical items: First, I've written a brief summary of the

>    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.
