There's a bunch here. Believe me -- I'm working as fast as I can to wrap up these bugs.
Indeed! And believe me, we are grateful, both to you and other huge contributors. GHC is a pretty big enterprise.
The intention is not to pile on pressure, but rather to share information. . No one is asking you to turn into superman/superwoman. It’s just that are many people working together, so sharing info about what can and cannot get done by date X is helpful. No more than that!

• Richard: the ReturnTv stuff (branch wip/exp-types)
Yes. I just pushed a candidate patch that may well validate. I'll merge tomorrow (Wed) on success.
• Richard: #11471 (levity)
This should hopefully be much easier than ExpTypes. Next Friday is a reasonable deadline.
• Richard: documentation for TypeInType
• Geoff: #11487
• Simon PJ: #11339
Richard, also if you look at https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Status/GHC-8.0.1 you can see “highest” priority tickets with you as owner, that are to do with TypeInType and TypeApplications.
There's a bunch here. Believe me -- I'm working as fast as I can to wrap up these bugs. Unfortunately, our release cycle overlaps with the critical time for the academic job market, so GHC is competing with my need to get a job. If anyone reading this wants to offer me a job, that could indeed have a tangible effect on how quickly I scoop up these bugs! :)
