Hello ghc-devs

For everyone who doesn't know me (yet), I am Hécate, and I coordinate 
the the Haskell Docs initiative.

You may have seen me on various community channels and on social media 
to recruit
lost souls^W^Wmotivated volunteers to help improve the documentation of 
the `base` library.
It can be a daunting task, hence this page that I set up to guide 
newcomers and track ongoing

The point of my message is the following:

If there are any modules you would like to see prioritised for the next 
release (8.12), please contact us.
Current efforts are very organic and stem from personal hardships with 
the docs, but if you feel
that some parts of the docs have been left too long on their own, give 
us a heads-up.

If you want to personally take on a module whose documentation you deem 
feel free to join us on #Haskell-docs[1] , so we can coordinate and 
avoid multiple people
working at the same time in an uncoordinated manner towards the same goal.

And finally if you do not wish to get involved but still wish to 
support, we communicate
on Twitter[2] and the Fediverse[3].

I would like to end this email by thanking Ben and Carter for their 
support and guidance.
The Core Libraries Committee has been instrumental to the development of
these efforts.

Cheers, and take care.
