Hi & thanks for setting up this system!
Is there somewhere shortish descriptions of what are the longer term goals of the language (haskell), the main tools, and its ecosystem? By longer term goals I mean something that is not a vision/mission but rather something that can be semi-concretely worked towards. (Actually a link to vision/mission statement wouldn’t hurt if it is somewhere.)
I tried to find something but didn’t find anything quickly. If there isn’t published one & why to ask this?
- If the goal is hard/impossible for small group, it might be possible for larger one. E.g. it may help getting company sponsors and coordinate actions to make things realize.
- It would show to people, what kind of great things to expect. I think that new-comers, those who just use the tools & libs, and those who dev the tools & libs, would benefit or find this interesting.
- E.g. if trying to show-case and introduce Haskell in a company, it would tell about coordinated and goal set path (as opposite to the random path).
- On other forum was a short discussion about language 2020 report and links to emails discussing if there is actually a need for the report. The init msg had quite critical tone. Having goals that are updated regularly would show certain kind of seriousness / a pro attitude / ?? and sometimes would help to make an answer.
If there is nothing published yet, whose job would it be to write one? Committee or community or both? (The yearly questionnaire has had q’s that are related.)
And as a last one, what would you like to see as a goal set?
