[Haskell-cafe] ANN: Creation of Haskell-Community list for Haskell.org Community Infrastructure Discussions

Dear all,

The haskell.org committee [1] had a productive week during ICFP, and
at some point we'll try to write up some of the small things underway
and future plans -- many things are quite tentative at the moment.

However, one thing that became clear to us (well, thanks to the useful
prodding of SPJ) is that we have historically participated in
discussions in other venues (-cafe, reddit, etc) and then had our own
internal discussions (few, seldom, and largely organizational to be
honest) on the low-traffic committee [at] haskell.org mail alias.

But this leaves open people wondering what those discussions are. And
it also leaves open where the *designated place* to discuss
haskell.org community infrastructure is. The haskell-infrastructure
[2] list is very quiet and really about technical considerations.
Meanwhile, -cafe, reddit and soforth are about anything and
everything. So we created another list, which will be a place where we
seek to have our discussions related to plans for haskell.org
committee work, and where we invite everyone to join us.

This new list is the haskell-community list:

The committee alias will still work, and is still the way to just
write directly to the members of the committee -- no list to join. But
if you wish to have a discussion about how we have things set up on
haskell community infrastructure, services provided, and that we might
wish to add, and how you can help (or even just what your thoughts are
on how things might be done), now there is a good place for that.

Hope to continue conversations with many of you there,
Gershom (for the haskell.org committee)
