Topic: documenting the MIR borrow check

Hi all! I've started taking a shot at expanding the rustc-guide documentation for the MIR borrow check. (Some of this content, as an aside, should probably also be added as rustdoc comments)

Here is my first chapter, which describes move-paths:

I'd love to get feedback. I'm also curious whether other people in this working group would feel up to drafting chapters. Maybe we can divide up this work? I think it's pretty important that before we call things "done" we have decent documentation.

cc @WG-compiler-nll but also @Wesley Wiser (not sure if you're in that alias...?)

Do you plan on having something written in ./mir/borrowck.md and ./mir/regionck.md? I saw that you removed the content of these files except for the title, but still kept the files themselves and links to them in the summary.

I .. eh?

nikomatsakis (Aug 31 2018 at 15:38, on Zulip):

that was a mistake then

nikomatsakis (Aug 31 2018 at 15:38, on Zulip):

I thought I removed them

nikomatsakis (Aug 31 2018 at 15:39, on Zulip):
