Several members of the Haskell Foundation have decided to take action regarding the precarious state of cryptography tooling in Haskell, and we are working on rejuvenating the maintenance of highly important projects that have lacked the means to keep up with new GHC releases and new features.
As such, the haskell-cryptography GitHub organisation has been created, and it aims to be the central point for developers and stake-holders of the ecosystem to join forces and collaborate.
This a matter of cryptography engineering and community-owned maintenance. You don’t have to be a cryptographer to participate, being involved in the stewardship of the repositories can be a very good first open-source Haskell experience.
That being said, we are also looking to collaborate with cryptographers who would like to use Haskell, or directly benefit from it and have a vested interest in its cryptography tooling.
Please make yourself known if you wish to participate. We’re not asking for a lifetime of commitment.
Hécate, for the Haskell Foundation
