Please remember that "ghc hq" = Austin and me. And I have another job. Relying on GHC for anything means that you may wait a long time.
So we increasingly rely on the army of GHC volunteers to do the heavy lifting. I'm increasingly encouraging Austin to see his role as
removing road-blocks from,
volunteers, rather than doing the work himself.
So Yay for motivation, but it's the ghc-devs community that you are addressing, not "ghc hq".
And THANK YOU ghc-devs. We love you.
