Dear all,

Although the Haskell 2010 Language Report has only been published  
recently, it will soon be time for the Committee to make decisions on  
the next version, Haskell 2011.

I am aiming for the committee to make decisions around the end of Sept  
or beginning of October 2010.

Can I therefore encourage any people who have made proposals, either  
informally on mailing lists, or formally in the Haskell-prime ticket  
system, to consider what they need to do to bring those proposals to a  
state where the committee can vote on them.  Perhaps you have not made  
such a proposal yourself, but are very keen that someone else's  
proposal be adopted.  Work with the proposer to polish it!

Here is what you need to know about the proposal process:

Please note especially that the key requirement that will bring your  
proposal to the attention of the committee for a decision is the  
"Report delta", which describes the changes with exact precision.
