Hello everyone,

Incredibly enough we are quickly coming up on three months since the
nominal GHC 8.6.1 release date. This means that the GHC 8.8 branch is
quickly approaching. We will plan on cutting the branch on November
18th. Note that this is in three weeks.

If you have a patch that you would like to see in GHC 8.8 and it isn't
yet up on Phabricator, do let me know. Moreover, if you have something
that will be in GHC 8.8 and you haven't yet added it to the release
status page [1], please add it.


- Ben
