What is a NHEP?
NHEP stands for NeoHaskell Evolution Proposal. It is a document that describes a change or addition to NeoHaskell.
Statuses of a NHEP
A NHEP can have one of the following statuses:
This status indicates that the NHEP is still being written and is not ready for review.
This status indicates that the NHEP has been accepted but is still being implemented.
This status indicates that the NHEP has been implemented.
This status is for informational NHEPs that have been accepted.
This status indicates that the NHEP has been rejected.
How to contribute to the design process
Everyone is welcome to propose, discuss, and review ideas to improve NeoHaskell in the
#proposals channel of the Discord server.
Note that the project is in a very early stage, and the contribution to the design process is not well defined.
As some general rules for now, take this into account before submitting a proposal:
- No "What about if NeoHaskell does a 180-degree turn and instead does this completely unrelated thing?". These kinds of proposals are seen as completely out of the scope of the NeoHaskell project and will be instantly dismissed.
- Use constructive criticism. Instead of "remove this, I don't like it", take a moment to think and give actual reasons like "I believe that this function in the standard library is not clear enough, someone could understand this in a wrong way"
- Is the problem being addressed impactful enough to warrant a change to NeoHaskell?
- How does this impact the Principle of Least Astonishment of the project?
- How does this impact the Principle of Developer Happiness of the project?
- How does this impact the Principle of Least Effort of the project? Both externally for the users and internally for the maintainers.
- Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of NeoHaskell?
- What other libraries/languages got you inspired to submit this proposal? How does this compare to those?
- How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
Please state explicitly whether you believe that the proposal should be accepted into NeoHaskell.
