Hi. I'm new to this mailing list and have a few questions.

Hi Anselm,


A good way of getting used to a list like this one is to wait a little while and observe what kind of messages others send; this will give you a feel for how the list is used. If you're impatient, you can also check out the archives at https://mail.haskell.org/pipermail/ghc-devs/.

As for a feature request: if your feature changes the language GHC accepts (most do), the right place to post is at https://github.com/ghc-proposals/ghc-proposals. There is a description of how to proceed on that page. Proposals submitted there get debated within the community and then eventually sent to a GHC Steering Committee for a vote on acceptance or rejection. Then, we worry about implementing it. If you have a suggestion that does not change the language GHC accepts, you can post an Issue at https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/.

I hope this is helpful!
