    101101 To this end, we've already done some massive simplification - in HEAD, the repositories for `base`, `testsuite`, `template-haskell`, `ghc-prim`, `integer-gmp` and `integer-simple` are now part of GHC's repository itself. These repositories are commonly developed in lockstep with GHC, and it greatly helps in many workflows, including bisection of bugs.

     103 Moreover, the remaining packages officially maintained by the core library committee that are currently managed via GHC's Trac will be relocated to the Haskell !GitHub organization in order to have GHC Trac focus on developing GHC proper as well as reduce the overhead for casual contributors to file issues and submit simple fixes for those packages.

    103105 * **Continuous integration improvements** - Work on new CI systems for GHC has been slow, but thanks to the work of **Joachim Breitner** and **Gábor Páli**, GHC is now built on http://travis-ci.org [TravisCI] as well as nightly builders of a variety of flavors and machines [Builders]. We're also hoping to investigate using a Continuous Integration system to help build against a stable set of selected Hackage packages, to help find issues with the releases more easily.
