ANNOUNCE: HC&A Report (4th edition, May 2003)

Mon, 12 May 2003 20:14:13 +0100

On behalf of the many contributors, I am happy to announce that the

             Haskell Communities and Activities Report
                    (4th edition, May 2003)


is now available from the Haskell Communities home page in several
formats: in PDF (with working links and index, yet printable) or,
for those who have problems with the PDF, in HTML (using John's
secret weapon again) and Postscript.

A big thanks here to everyone who contributed information to the
report! I hope you will find it as interesting to read as we did. 

For those of you who haven't heard of these reports before, the
first edition of the HC&A Report was released in November 2001, with
the goal of helping to improve the communication between the various
groups, projects, and individuals working on, with or inspired by
Haskell. The idea of these reports is simple:

  Every six months, a call goes out to all of you on the Haskell
  mailing list to contribute brief summaries of your own area of work.
  Many of you respond (eagerly, unprompted, and well in time for the
  deadline;-) to the call.  I then collect all these into a single
  report and feed it back to this very mailing list.

And when we try for the next update in six months, you might want
to add your own work, project, research area or group as well. So,
please, put that item into your diary now!

  End of October 2003: 
    target deadline for contributions to 
    the November 2003 edition of the HC&A Report

It has become clear that many Haskellers who work on interesting
projects no longer have the time to follow the Haskell mailing list
closely and may thus miss the calls for contribution. If you are a
member or know of such projects, please point them to the current
edition, and invite them to "register" with me for a simple
email-reminder in the middle of October (and no, you can't register
anyone else:). Of course, they'll still have to act on that
reminder, but perhaps we can extend our reach this way..

Enjoy (and communicate;-)!
