I also blog frequently on the Yesod Web Framework blog, as well as the FP Complete blog.

Call for new Stack issue triager

For those unfamiliar with it, Stack has a team called the “Stack Issue Triagers.” If you’ve been interacting on the Stack issue tracker recently, it’s likely that those are the people you’ve seen answering questions. We’ve been slowly ramping up the team, and it seems to have been quite successful so far at helping Stack users, as well as escalating issues and getting them resolved as necessary.

We’re looking to expand the team again. This team is a volunteer effort, with each person taking a week at a time of responding to issues. We have a lot more information on this in the team process Stack documentation. Working with this team is not only a great service to the community, but also gives you a chance to learn more about maintaining a large open source Haskell codebase, and gives you many opportunities to interact with the Stack maintainers.

For now, we’re adding 1 new person to the team, though we’ll likely add another one in three months time, and continue the ramp up process from there. If you’re interested in taking part, please send me a private email to michael at snoyman dot com.

I’ll collect applicants and discuss with the team members. If you have questions about the process, please feel free to ask on the Gitter Stack chat!
