Thanks for releasing GHC 8.2.1 RC 3.

While testing this RC candidate on Agda we found a compilation error.

The error was caused by an *unused* module which *is* compiled by this
RC but it *is not* compiled by previous versions of GHC including
8.2.1 RC 2. This module was listed in the `other-modules` field of the
`test-suite` section in the .cabal file. After removing the offending
module, we didn't find more problems.

While I think GHC is doing the right thing here, it is not an obvious
error on medium size projects like Agda. This is the reason for
sharing this information.
