In my news archives
(which start 9 Feb 92,
 shortly after we got an internet connection back there :-)
I found the Haskell 1.2 announcement,
which refers to a mailing list:

 | haskell-request at cs.yale.edu or haskell-request at dcs.glasgow.ac.uk,

 | implementation status, send mail to one of the addresses mentioned in
