(Oh dear, I sent the below e-mail from the wrong address /again/. Will 
take this as a cue to faff with my mail client settings, and in the 
meanwhile apologise to Gregory and Bas for the duplication; please do 
not reply to my address at srcf.net)

One thing I would regard as nice-to-have and worth mentioning while we 
have the review process here: a ChangeLog with (at least) the API 
changes to each version documented. When I'm creating a package and I 
want to set version bounds correctly, I often find that the lack of a 
nice, concise changelog makes this process a lot longer and more tedious 
than it need be.

I don't think I'd regard this as essential or even particularly 
important, but it's something I'd like to see more widespread in Haskell
