                     Haskell Weekly News: November 15, 2005

   Greetings, and thanks for reading the 15th issue of HWN, a weekly
   newsletter for the Haskell community. Each Tuesday, new editions will be
   posted (as text) to [1]the Haskell mailing list and (as HTML) to [2]The
   Haskell Sequence.

   Making Haskell more open. Simon Peyton-Jones began a [4]long thread with
   some ideas about making Haskell more open to the wider community. The
   thread is too long to completely summarize here, and branched out in
   several directions, including a [5]discussion of the haskell.org homepage.

   longer." -- Claus Reinke on haskell-cafe.

About Haskell Weekly News

   Yes, it's late again. But, while I am no Zaphod Beeblebrox, carry no
   towel, have no Improbability Drive, and certainly couldn't have come up
   with 42 on my own, if Douglas Adam's "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe"
   series can still be called a trilogy, then HWN can still be 
   called weekly :-)

   Want to continue reading HWN? Please help us create new editions of this
   newsletter. Please see the [8]contributing information, or send stories to
   hwn -at- complete -dot- org. There is also a Darcs repository available.
