Dear Haskell lovers,

The Haskell Prime process for standardisation of new versions of the Haskell language is at something of an impasse.  Since the Haskell 2010 Report was issued (at the end of 2009), there has been very little momentum to formalise existing extensions and generalisations, nor appetite to decide on whether any such extensions should be adopted as part of the core language standard.

We therefore seek nominations for new members of the Haskell Prime language committee; people who have the enthusiasm to take this forward, as well as some relevant experience.

If you think you would like to contribute, please nominate yourself by sending a email to

    haskell-2011-committee at

describing who you are, and what you think the committee might hope to achieve.  The address above
is populated by the existing committee members, but is now (temporarily) open to all during the nomination period.  Nominations close in 3 weeks time, i.e. to be received by end of Sunday 24th February 2013.

The process for deciding a new language committee is described at
