tl;dr. The feature freeze for GHC 8.2 will happen on 30 January 2016.
       Get any patches you'd like to see in 8.2 up on Phabricator soon!

Hello everyone,

GHC 8.2.1 is quickly approaching. Our plan is to do a release candidate
in February, so we would like to have the tree sorted out by the end of
this month. Consequently, I would like to set a general feature freeze
for 30 Janary 2016. After the freeze I will be much less likely to
accept larger patches; ideally all work post-freeze should be in the
name of preparing the tree for cutting the ghc-8.2 branch.

If you are concerned that your work isn't positioned to meet this freeze
date then please speak to me so we can make appropriate arrangements.

Happy hacking!
