Dear List,

There are a large number of untriaged pull requests and issues
currently open on the issue tracker for haskell-src-exts. The tool is
widely used by tool writers but the last commit to the project is now
over 6 months ago.

I think it is important to get this work merged and update the parser
to support modern language features introduced in GHC 7.8 and 7.10. I
would personally be capable of helping with this effort but before
doing so I would appreciate a comment from the current maintainers as
to the current status of the project.


1. Does anyone know if Niklas or Peter plan to return to the project?
2. Is there anyone else who is interested in updating the HSE parser?
