By the time of the hackathon, I (Brent Yorgey) hope to have the new version of [http://hackage.haskell.org/package/diagrams diagrams] developed to the point where others can usefully hack on many parts of it in parallel. Examples of things that might need doing include hacking on the core library and layout engine itself, developing fun/interesting examples and contrib modules that provide higher-level diagram facilities, and developing backends for rendering to various formats.

1 Sharing your code

If you need a place to host a project so that others can help with it, we suggest patch-tag, which offers free hosting for public darcs repositories. If you're using git, github is just dandy as well.

You can also apply for an account on the community server.

2 Projects

If you have a project that you want to work on at the Hackathon, please describe it here.

Since Hackathons are great for teamwork, consider joining one of the projects mentioned below. If you're interested in one of these projects, add your name to the list of hackers under that project.

2.1 Diagrams

The diagrams project is coming along quite nicely and there will be lots to work on: developing fun/interesting examples and contrib modules that provide higher-level diagram facilities, tools to aid in diagram development, and lots of individual bugs to squash and features to add.

2.2 GHC cross compilation

GHC has had several recent fixes to help turn it into a cross compiler (thanks to Irene Knapp and Mark Lentczner,) but it's still not quite possible to easily cross compile stage2, and there still remains a hefty bit of build system and preprocessor cruft remaining.

2.3 Meta-Project

This is not a real project, but the cannibalization of bits and pieces of others. I'm teaching a Haskell course in the Fall, and I'm always on the lookout for homework/project ideas. Stumble on anything cool in the code you are currently working on? Or, what was it about Haskell really hooked you? Last year I had fun with a SAT solver, a GADT-certified Red black tree, a concurrency monad, and the implementation of a simple imperative language. Class schedule from last year

3 Experience

Please list projects with which you are familiar. This way, people know whom to contact for more information or guidance on a particular project.
