Has anyone offered to help with tryhaskell.org? And, if not, would anyone like to? :-)
There are a few tickets in the haskell repo pertaining to it, so it would probably be good to share the work around a bit to keep the machine humming in decent shape.
Thanks for your work on all these resources for all these years Chris, and thanks for being proactive about transition of maintainership.
