2 Collaborative documentation

GHC is a big system. We try to document the core functionality (above), but you can help by writing documentation yourself. This section collects documentation written in a collaborative way, by users and developers together. Please help by adding new sections, and by clarifying and improving existing ones.

3 Development of GHC

See the GHC Developer Wiki. The latest snapshot of the documentation for the next version can be found here.
