Notes from Utrecht on future directions for packages and infrastructure

containers

Work underway to do general performance improvements to the containers package, based on worker/wrapper and other idioms. New repository for work on patch-tag:

* https://patch-tag.com/r/dons/containers/home

hackage 2

Ready Hackage 2 for use.

* Basic docs: http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage/wiki/HackageDB/2.0/Architecture
* http://code.haskell.org/hackage-server

network

network package is low level, difficult to maintain and fragile. Rewrite using design from python?

hashtables

Fast, open addressed hashtables: useful, but relatively small ROI. Also quite complex.

text

Propose text for the HP.

platform

Generate unified docs for the HP.
