The proposal is simply as follows.

1. Make a list, haskell-jobs. This would be primarily for job postings
and looking-for-job posts. A secondary purpose is discussing jobs.
E.g. "Anyone know any jobs in the Foo area?", and meta-discussions
like "How well does Haskell jobs pay in your experience?".

2. Make a list, haskell-academia. This would be primarily for
studentship postings and call for papers. A secondary purpose is
discussing academia. E.g. "Anyone know any unis that use Haskell
extensively in the Foo area?", and meta-discussions like "How well is
Haskell taught at unis in your experience?"

The motivation for this is twofold.

1. We get a lot of job postings and studentship postings. Many of
these will be ignored by readers, up until they suddenly find
themselves looking for a job or studentship. It would be useful if
they could then easily filter their email on lists -- or go to the
online archives for that specific list. The latter is a big Win,
because they needn't even be subscribed in the first place.

2. Job/studentship postings are effectively spam, unless you are
actually looking for that kind of information. This proposal will
reduce the amount of spam people get. That's always nice.

Two weeks should be a satisfactory discussion period.
