Mathematical prelude discussion
There have been many ideas for improving the prelude's support for mathematics. Including the addition of algebraic classes. But the discussion is spread over years of list archives and a half dozen websites. And the discussion has never gelled.
This page is intended to collect links to past discussion, and to provide a focal point for advancing the discussion.
