                                 RESULT
                   comp.lang.haskell will be created

The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 23 Oct 2006 initiated a five-day period
for final comments.  Following this comment period, the Big-8 Management
Board has decided by consensus to create the newsgroup comp.lang.haskell.

The group will be created on 04 Nov 2006.


NEWSGROUPS LINE: comp.lang.haskell

comp.lang.haskell	Functional programming with lazy evaluation.


CHARTER:

The comp.lang.haskell unmoderated newsgroup is for the discussion of the
programming language Haskell, including but not limited to:

    * conceptual and mathematical foundations
    * interpreter and compiler development
    * libraries
    * learning Haskell
    * programming in Haskell
    * implementation-specific issues
    * comparison to other programming languages (within reason)

Cryptographic signatures and small source code snippets are permitted,
but spam and other binary posts are prohibited.

Students seeking help on school work should be handled on a case-by-case
basis.  In general, thoughtful questions by students showing a true
desire to learn may be appropriate for discussion, but blatant attempts
to have newsgroup participants complete assignments are likely to be
ignored at best, and possibly reported to the relevant institution.
