7.8 Release Update

I'd like to bring up one thing related to upcomming release. So far we've been releasing GHC compiled against libgmp.3.0. This was a major pain if the distro did not provide that library. I suspect that we will be building against newer version of libgmp, but the problem still remains. Would it be possible to ship libgmp with binary distribution of GHC so that users don't have to rely on their distro providing a precise version of that library?

|  also helps keep the history clean. An easy way to do this is:
|  $ git checkout master
|  $ git merge --squash type-nats-simple
|  Then the changes will be on your branch, uncommitted, and a simple
|  'git commit ...' should let you make a big commit and write up some
|  explanation.

Woo.  I'd never heard of that.   Sounds really useful.

Please Git experts, can you document some of these helpful workflows for us ingnoramuses!  A series of headings "To do X..." followed by a how-to like the above, with a bit of explanation of when to use it and what is going on.  Would be v helpful!
