On behalf of the many, many contributors, we are pleased to announce
that the

               Haskell Communities and Activities Report
                     (14th edition, May 2008)


is now available from the Haskell Communities home page in PDF and
HTML formats.

Many thanks go to all the people that contributed to this report,
both directly, by sending in descriptions, and indirectly, by doing
all the interesting things that are reported. We hope you will find
it as interesting a read as we did.

If you haven't encountered the Haskell Communities and Activities
Reports before, you may like to know that the first of these reports
was published in November 2001. Their goal is to improve the
communication between the increasingly diverse groups, projects and
individuals working on, with, or inspired by Haskell. The idea behind
these reports is simple:

     Every six months, a call goes out to all of you enjoying Haskell to
     contribute brief summaries of your own area of work. Many of you
     respond (eagerly, unprompted, and well in time for the actual
     deadline ;) ) to the call. The editor collects all the contributions
     into a single report and feeds that back to the community.

When we try for the next update, six months from now, you might want
to report on your own work, project, research area or group as well.
So, please put the following into your diaries now:

                        End of October 2008:
             target deadline for contributions to the
             November 2008 edition of the HC&A Report

Unfortunately, many Haskellers working on interesting projects are so
busy with their work that they seem to have lost the time to follow
the Haskell related mailing lists and newsgroups, and have trouble even
finding time to report on their work. If you are a member, user or
friend of a project so burdened, please find someone willing to make
time to report and ask them to `register' with the editor for a simple
e-mail reminder in the middle of November (you could point us to them as
well, and we can then politely ask if they want to contribute, but it
might work better if you do the initial asking). Of course, they will
still have to find the ten to fifteen minutes to draw up their report,
but maybe we can increase our coverage of all that is going on in the

Feel free to circulate this announcement further in order to
reach people who might otherwise not see it. Enjoy!
