[Haskell-cafe] Call for new Stackage Curator

I'm copying the text from my blog post today[1].

On behalf of the Stackage curators, I'm putting out a call for a volunteer
to join the team. The Stackage curators are responsible for the day-to-day
management of the Stackage project: merging PRs, managing builds, reporting
bounds issues and build or test failures, and every once in a while making
a judgement call on when to bump to newer package versions.

The curator team currently consists of Adam Bergmark, Dan Burton, Jens
Petersen, and me. The processes we follow are documented in the curator
guide[2]. We each rotate shifts, taking one week at a time on duty.
Overall, the workload is light and straightforward: usually less than 30
minutes a day.

We're putting out this call for a new volunteer since we've been running as
a four-person show for a while now, and want to make sure we're getting our
processes well documented enough for newcomers to easily come up to speed
on the process. While we are currently asking for just one new addition to
the team, if there are multiple enthusiastic candidates, we will definitely
consider expanding the team further.

Joining the curator team is a great way to both contribute to the Haskell
ecosystem, and to become more familiar with how things work. You'll also
get an opportunity to interact (albeit in brief discussions) with many
package maintainers in the Haskell community.

If you're interested in applying, please send a message to the Stackage
mailing list[3] or, if you prefer applying privately, send me an email and
I'll pass the message along to the rest of the team.
