Herewith I propose Atze Dijkstra as a member of the Haskell 2011  

Atze is the main architect/implementor of the Utrecht Haskell Compiler  
(see, and last year Haskell Symposium),  
and has as a result of that a very good insight in the implementation  
issues involved with new features/extensions/changes. He furthermore  
co-supervises Arie Middelkoop who is working on the Ruler system,  
which aims to be a tool for describing (the implementations of) type  
systems, and Jeroen Fokker who is working on a Grin-based whole- 
program analysis

The compiler itself is currently about 100.000 lines of Haskell. A  
second release is planned for the beginning of next year, which will  
contain a completely new garbage collector, a cabal based installation  
scheme, and the beginning of some global optimisations.

I think Atze primarily covers the following categories: Implementors,  
Academic users, Teachers.

If you have any questions I am more than willing to answer them,
