I gentle nudge about the idea of a HIW talk on contributing to GHC
development. I'm glad some people think that this is a good idea.
However, given that the official deadline for talk proposals has
already passed, at least an abstract would have to be submitted to the
HIW committee very soon to be considered. The presentation content can
of course be put together much closer to the time.

I don't want to create work for anyone, of course.
