In https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/62848 I propose to move rustc to use unicode-xid crate. Should this be discussed at some t-compiler meeting? Or is it ok to just make sure that t-compiler can publish this crate and move forward without big discussion? :]
I think it's fine to just move forward (but not on compiler team myself). Ensuring that t-compiler has access of some sort is good.
You can tag the PR as
T-compiler and rfcbot it
@matklad we actually have a policy of sorts around this -- listed here -- it mostly applies, except that this is of course not a crate that the compiler team will take ownership of, right?
actually we've a section on third-party crates specifically
I think t-compiler should take ownership (or at least me personally): this crates is used heavily (by
syn), so it seems a good idea to make sure that it is maintained
see https://github.com/unicode-rs/unicode-xid/pull/12#issuecomment-515037878 for maintainance discussion
@oli I can't rfcbot :sob: https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/62848#issuecomment-515075895
