Hey @simulacrum, @centril, @Matthew Jasper --

when we last talked about migrating away from NLL, I think part of the plan was some kind of "hey! this is coming in 1.40!" sort of blog post. AFAIK this did not happen, right? Seems like something we should work on?

nikomatsakis (Oct 15 2019 at 09:34, on Zulip):

Or did we somehow convince ourselves that we've mitigated all of the concerning cases?

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 09:39, on Zulip):

Google says we have 23 days until Nov 7th

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 09:40, on Zulip):

Yea would be good to write up that blog post; I am up for collaborating on it

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 09:41, on Zulip):

Maybe also make a celebratory announcement that AST borrowck is byebye when 1.40 approaches?

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 09:41, on Zulip):

Maybe @pnkfelix wants in

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 09:45, on Zulip):

also cc @Pietro Albini

Pietro Albini (Oct 15 2019 at 09:46, on Zulip):

how's the current breakage situation?

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 09:47, on Zulip):

@Pietro Albini we haven't checked after the last crater run

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 09:47, on Zulip):

(which wasn't that long ago tho)

simulacrum (Oct 15 2019 at 10:46, on Zulip):

I think we should probably do a nightly crater run perhaps to try and check? Last I looked crater queue was ~5 days long

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 10:46, on Zulip):

we have 5 PRs now

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 10:46, on Zulip):

we lost one builder it seems

simulacrum (Oct 15 2019 at 10:50, on Zulip):

we are on distributed crater now

simulacrum (Oct 15 2019 at 10:50, on Zulip):

I think

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 10:51, on Zulip):

@simulacrum what does distributed crater mean exactly?

centril (Oct 15 2019 at 10:51, on Zulip):

it goes much faster? :P

simulacrum (Oct 15 2019 at 10:51, on Zulip):

both agents/builders are working on the same job

simulacrum (Oct 15 2019 at 10:51, on Zulip):

cc @Pietro Albini

Pietro Albini (Oct 15 2019 at 10:54, on Zulip):

yep, we do half the experiments at the same time but a single one takes half the time

Pietro Albini (Oct 15 2019 at 10:55, on Zulip):

it doesn't really matter when there are queued experiments, but it will help in the future if there is only one experiment in the queue or we get more and smaller agents

Pietro Albini (Oct 15 2019 at 10:56, on Zulip):

wasn't really feasible before to get less powerful machines as the experiment on that agent would be pretty slow, but now we can get them as they'll just contribute whatever they can to the distributed experiment
