Thanks Herbert, for taking the lead in getting this process rolling again.

I just wanted to take a moment to note that, while I am not in academia myself, 
it seems to me that serving on the committee  should be a very good opportunity 
for graduate students and younger PhDs to engage in what is considered “service 
to the profession,” as much so as reviewing papers or such. While nailing down 
extensions to a language spec is not necessarily a glamorous task, it is 
certainly one that is important. Furthermore, given the growth in the use of 
Haskell as a general purpose programming language adopted across many 
application domains, involvement with the language standardization process 
seems like it is potentially more of a “feather in one’s professional cap” than 
in years prior.
