Hi Ben,

just a heads up: we are still on track for a Diff submission for linear
types by end of October (the cut-off date you advertized at the top of this
thread for feature work on GHC 8.8, and the one we stated we'd aim for in
September). We might run into last minute blockers of course, but so far so

I've been told that we'll be hearing from the Committee before then about
acceptance or rejection of the proposal.
