Common library for generic programming

Johan Jeuring and Andres Loeh announced an initiative to design a common library for generic programming, which should work together with most of the Haskell compilers, and for which they hope to guarantee support for generics in Haskell into the future. If you want to get involved (or just want to see the discussion), you can subscribe to the generics mailing list. Check the Haskell research wiki for some background on generics.

Work Plan

We have identified a number of approaches that are potential candidates to a generic programming library:

At the moment we are discussing the advantages and disadvantages of the different approaches. Each approach is roughly two weeks under discussion and the results will be published in this Wiki Page. There is also a darcs repository where you can find some code that we are collecting. For retriving this code do:

> darcs get http://darcs.haskell.org/generics

The template that we are using to summarise the different approaches can be found here.
