Hey @T-compiler -- there is now an Inside Rust blog we can use to post minutes, make announcements, and the like. I think posting status updates and the like here will be a great way to bring visibility to the work we're doing, and also to help draw attention to places where we'd like help.

nikomatsakis (Oct 03 2019 at 15:13, on Zulip):

I've been drafting up the policies for posting but the intention is that anything "team related" is fair game.

nikomatsakis (Oct 03 2019 at 15:13, on Zulip):

So I'd say feel free to open PRs, and/or ping me if you've got any doubts.

nikomatsakis (Oct 03 2019 at 15:14, on Zulip):

(Also, cc me by name in the PR to bring it to my attention, or pnkfelix I guess?)

mark-i-m (Oct 03 2019 at 23:00, on Zulip):

I would propose not to post minutes. I feel like if there is a regular stream of routine content their, people may stop reading it...

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 12:31, on Zulip):

Hmm, I partially agree

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 12:31, on Zulip):

I was nervous about that

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 12:31, on Zulip):

but I think it makes sense to post perhaps minute excerpts

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 12:31, on Zulip):

in particular "calls for help"

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 12:31, on Zulip):

also the working group updates

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 12:32, on Zulip):

I think having that plus a link to full minutes feels good

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 12:32, on Zulip):

I agree nobody cares which PRs we backport

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 12:59, on Zulip):

oh, also, it seems like there are a lot of more interesting meetings -- most notably design meetings, but also the "off the cuff" design meetings we sometimes have -- that would be worth documenting

Santiago Pastorino (Oct 04 2019 at 14:06, on Zulip):

what about a less frequent highlights post from the project where things could be taken from minutes and probably elsewhere?

Santiago Pastorino (Oct 04 2019 at 14:06, on Zulip):

the drawback is that it demands a bit of work but maybe doing a bi-weekly post about that or something may be nice

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:07, on Zulip):

that could work too

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:07, on Zulip):

we'd need a designated person (or group of people) to keep track of it

simulacrum (Oct 04 2019 at 14:07, on Zulip):

I think it'd be interesting to post the minutes in an "unlisted" fashion somehow

simulacrum (Oct 04 2019 at 14:07, on Zulip):

e.g. such that they're in an official place but not in the main list of posts

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:07, on Zulip):

they are posted on the compiler-team repo

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:07, on Zulip):

so i'm not sure if you mean more than that

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:07, on Zulip):

we could do better about ensuring people do it for all meetings

simulacrum (Oct 04 2019 at 14:08, on Zulip):

hm, sure, but I feel like a blog.rust-lang.org URL feels more official rather than some github repo

simulacrum (Oct 04 2019 at 14:08, on Zulip):

Though maybe we just get TWIR to link to the compiler minutes

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:08, on Zulip):

I've been thinking more that maybe we need to consolidate the compiler-team, lang-team, core-team, fo-bar repos a bit ...

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:08, on Zulip):

(or maybe have some "scraping" tool that populates something on the web site)

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:08, on Zulip):

anyway

Pietro Albini (Oct 04 2019 at 14:11, on Zulip):

well we had https://github.com/rust-lang/meeting-minutes

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:37, on Zulip):

no what I want is different

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:37, on Zulip):

not just minutes

nikomatsakis (Oct 04 2019 at 14:37, on Zulip):

anyway sorry :)
