Topic: steering meeting 2019.05.10


nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:42, on Zulip):

So, I think the plan is for us to try out our first "planning meeting" this Friday, to schedule the next few discussions. The idea is just to open a new issue on the compiler-team repo with a proposed topic. (There is an issue template)

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:42, on Zulip):

As of now, we have one proposal for running rustfmt on the repo (from @centril)

eddyb (May 07 2019 at 16:42, on Zulip):

I think I had a question regarding the template

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:42, on Zulip):

Go for it

eddyb (May 07 2019 at 16:42, on Zulip):

but I don't remember where I put it

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:42, on Zulip):

Heh, ok.

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:43, on Zulip):

I view this very much as an experiment. So if something doesn't "fit", I'd say feel free to "alter"

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:43, on Zulip):

(I should also add that, presuming we like how this meeting feels, I'd be happy to find someone else to help organize it, as I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed on this front lately.)

centril (May 07 2019 at 16:43, on Zulip):

I thought the last bits should be left off as it didn't seem to add info

eddyb (May 07 2019 at 16:43, on Zulip):

they seemed to be boilerplate for anyone who is looking at the issue and missing context

eddyb (May 07 2019 at 16:44, on Zulip):

as to what these issues are

centril (May 07 2019 at 16:44, on Zulip):

Possibly :P It wasn't clear to me in either case so if it should be there please clarify the template

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:44, on Zulip):

I think my intention was to help in clarifying the discussion

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:44, on Zulip):

Perhaps they could be changed from "sections" to "guidance"

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:44, on Zulip):

i.e., things to include

eddyb (May 07 2019 at 16:45, on Zulip):

I'm talking about "About this issue" and "Comment policy"

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:45, on Zulip):

Oh, that

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:45, on Zulip):

Yes, that was the idea

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:46, on Zulip):

We can just delete them if we want, or re-word. I don't know how to make it clearer.

eddyb (May 07 2019 at 16:47, on Zulip):

@centril omitted them and I think he should've kept them

centril (May 07 2019 at 16:47, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis maybe where you say "oh and please remove this section" also add "oh and please keep the rest"?

centril (May 07 2019 at 16:47, on Zulip):

that would have removed my confusion

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:50, on Zulip):

ok

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 16:50, on Zulip):

yes I'll do that

centril (May 07 2019 at 16:53, on Zulip):

looks good to me

nikomatsakis (May 07 2019 at 18:21, on Zulip):

Meeting proposal: Shipping parallel rustc compiler-team#82
