With talk of retiring the 8.10 branch, I think it might be worthwhile to
remind folks that GHC 8.10(.6) is still the most recent release that is
suitable for production use. GHC 9.0.1 is *not* suitable for production
use due to major issues, and GHC 9.0.2 is not ready yet.

Thank you to the GHC developers for great progress. Four active
branches does indeed sound daunting. I hope that the GHC 8.10.7 release
goes well, and I am really looking forward to a production-ready release
of GHC 9 whenever it is ready!
