Maybe the easiest thing is to use a github clone of the main GHC repo, which we can both push to. I'm vague about how to do this. Will ask Simon Marlow when he's back (Monday I think).
(others: Jacques is working with me on the Big Template Haskell changes proposed in my blog article ). http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/blog/Template%20Haskell%20Proposal

| Subject: 2 tests 'added'
| I have added 2 "proper" tests, based on the files I sent yesterday, to
| testsuite/tests/th, and modified all.T accordingly. They work with the
| yesterday's HEAD, and should continue to work with once quotes and
| splices are typed. I have committed them locally, but not pushed them
| (I probably don't have permission to anyways). What is the best way
| for me to contribute these tests?
| I looked at all my metaocaml code (I do have a fair chunk);
| unfortunately most of these codes are fairly large, so it will take me
| a little bit of time to translate them to idiomatic Haskell. This
| process has started, and I will continue that. I will incrementally
| add more tests to testsuite/tests/th as these translations get into
| decent shape.
| I guess that where I will be able to help most quickly would be once
| some of the current TH tests start failing because they are not type-
| safe or involve splices which should be untyped. Once you have a
| version of HEAD (or a branch) which seems to mostly work, I can
| certainly go through the TH tests with a fine-tooth comb and analyse
| all the failures, and deal with everything with an 'obvious'
| Anything else I can help with, please ask, and I'll jump right in.
