The first year of the Haskell Core Libraries Committee
<http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Core_Libraries_Committee> is winding
down, and we are seeking self-nominations to replace two outgoing committee

Doug Beardsley and Brent Yorgey have offered to be the first two members of
the committee to have their slots come up for renewal.

To nominate yourself, please send an email to
core-libraries-committee at haskell.org by June 30th and include any
information that you think will help us reach a decision.

The core libraries committee acts as the collective maintainer of many
packages that glue together the Haskell Platform, but which otherwise do
not have an individual maintainer. See Library Submissions
<http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Library_submissions> for more details
about which packages fall to the committee for maintenance.

As we are now talking on more of the implementation effort for the
Applicative-Monad Proposal, bringing Foldable and Traversable into Prelude,
performing active maintenance on vector, etc., you should be forewarned
that these are becoming increasingly active positions now that GHC 7.8 has
shipped and we are ramping up for more active participation in the GHC
release process.
