GHC contribution guidelines and infrastructure talk on 6th September at HIW?

(Sorry for joining this late... I figured we would be in dialogue off
the list eventually)
Joachim wrote and posted a proposal, and I think this proposal is indeed
a good idea (and one of the purposes of HIW, definite yes).
We shall make room for it in the programme, possibly in the last
session, which can turn into the "Haskell release discussion evening".

> 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.
