Hello Laura,

First of all, this is an horribly late reply, and I'm sorry for that. 
Eric's advice about comments, and about "just going in and making 
changes", is perfectly sound of course. As for current activity in the 
Wikibook, I try to, at least a couple times per year, spend some time 
there reviewing pending changes, performing general maintenance and 
writing some new content. I am not aware of other active (or 
sporadically active, like myself) regulars right now, though there is a 
steady trickle of helpful changes by visitors.

I replied to some of your comments in the talk pages, in case you still 
have an use for them after so long. You can find the replies more 
quickly than through the regular interface by going to 
https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/User:Duplode/Haskell/Public_watchlist and 
using the "Related changes" link in the sidebar, under Tools (that page, 
by the way, is a crude measure to make changes to book talk pages a 
little easier to monitor, given the inflexibility of MediaWiki in that
