This is looking like a great year for the platform!

I'm especially interested in seeing aeson, criterion and test-framework
make it into the platform. I'd also like to become more involved in the
Haskell ecosystem, so - is there anything I can do to help? While I'm
roughly familiar with the philosophy of the platform is there any thing
I should read about how to contribute? Are there clear guidelines on the
steps that a package needs to go through before it can be added?

I'd also through in configuration into the mix (configurator?), and also
perhaps command line argument parsing (optparse-applicative? cmdtheline?).
