On 31 Oct 2006, the Big-8 Management Board decided to create the unmoderated
group comp.lang.haskell.  The group was created on 04 Nov 2006.

For more information on the proposal and history, please refer to the 

For your newsgroups file:
comp.lang.haskell	Polymorphically-typed lazy purely-functional programming


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.
