I think such a discussion would be a Good Thing, and just what HIW is for.

On a related front... I don't have a talk to give (hence I didn't submit a proposal)... But I'd love it if some of us could have a group discussion about coordinating releases, and our approach to putting out "Haskell":
In short, we see it as several related peices (GHC, Cabal, Haddock, core libs, platform, etc...) but my guess is that most developers considering using Haskell see it as one thing: "Can I haz the Haskellz on my machine? kthxbai?" Therefore, I think we could put some thought into how we manage these pieces into a cohesive whole whose release more or less "just works".
Not sure if this should be a "session", a "workshop", a long hallway disucssion, a night of good food and beer, or what. I'm happy to put some effort into organizing, and setting the context for the discussion.
