The [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haskell_%28programming_language%29 Haskell Wikipedia Article] is an ad hoc collection of edits with no overriding structure or theme. The Haskell community should be able to contribute a better article to represent this project.
 
 
Here's a draft structure based on the "[[History_of_Haskell|History of Haskell]]" paper.
 
 
Please make comments on the [[Talk:WikipediaArticleDesign|Discussion page]]
