We are always looking for help on our projects. If you would like to volunteer, please reach out to us at volunteer@haskell.foundation, or join the Haskell Foundation Slack. If you have a proposal, we'd love to hear it!

Text-UTF8 Migration

The UTF-8 character set encoding is the industry standard. Haskell Foundation is driving the effort behind the migration of the core text libraries to use UTF-8 as a default. This will have a positive effect on text performance of many Haskell programs.
