> FAQ:
> Q: What format should I write in?
> A: The usual format is a LaTeX source file, adhering to the template
> that is available at:
>      http://haskell.org/communities/11-2017/template.tex
> There is also a LaTeX style file at
>      http://haskell.org/communities/11-2017/hcar.sty
> that you can use to preview your entry.
> If you do not know LaTeX or don't want to use it or don't have time to
> translate your entry into it, then please use plain text, it is better
> to have an entry in plain-text which we will translate than not have
> it at all.
> If you modify an old entry that you have written for an earlier
> edition of the report, you should soon receive your old entry as a
> template (provided we have your valid email address). Please modify
> that template, rather than using your own version of the old entry as
> a template.
> Q: Can I include Haskell code?
> A: Yes. Please use lhs2tex syntax
> (http://www.andres-loeh.de/lhs2tex/). The report is compiled in mode
> polycode.fmt.
> Q: Can I include images?
> A: Yes, you are even encouraged to do so. Please use .jpg or .png
> format, then. PNG is preferred for simplicity.
> Q: Should I send files in .zip archives or similar?
> A: No, plain file attachments are the way.
> Q: How much should I write?
> A: Authors are asked to limit entries to about one column of text. A
> general introduction is helpful. Apart from that, you should focus on
> recent or upcoming developments. Pointers to online content can be
> given for more comprehensive or "historic" overviews of a project.
> Images do not count towards the length limit, so you may want to use
> this opportunity to pep up entries. There is no minimum length of an
> entry! The report aims for being as complete as possible, so please
> consider writing an entry, even if it is only a few lines long.
> Q: Which topics are relevant?
> A: All topics which are related to Haskell in some way are relevant.
> We usually had reports from users of Haskell (private, academic, or
> commercial), from authors or contributors to projects related to
> Haskell, from people working on the Haskell language, libraries, on
> language extensions or variants. We also like reports about
> distributions of Haskell software, Haskell infrastructure, books and
> tutorials on Haskell. Reports on past and upcoming events related to
> Haskell are also relevant. Finally, there might be new topics we do
> not even think about. As a rule of thumb: if in doubt, then it
> probably is relevant and has a place in the HCAR. You can also simply
> ask us.
> Q: Is unfinished work relevant? Are ideas for projects relevant?
> A: Yes! You can use the HCAR to talk about projects you are currently
> working on. You can use it to look for other developers that might
> help you. You can use HCAR to ask for more contributors to your
> project, it is a good way to gain visibility and traction.
> Q: If I do not update my entry, but want to keep it in the report,
> what should I do?
> A: Tell us that there are no changes. The old entry will typically be
> reused in this case, but it might be dropped if it is older than a
> year, to give more room and more attention to projects that change a
> lot. Do not resend complete entries if you have not changed them.
> Q: Will I get confirmation if I send an entry? How do I know whether
> my email has even reached its destination, and not ended up in a spam
> folder?
> A: Prior to publication of the final report, we will send a draft to
> all contributors, for possible corrections. So if you do not hear from
> us within two weeks after the deadline, it is safer to send another
> mail and check whether your first one was received.
