Hello, I am interested in helping work on const generics support in
rustc. Does anyone know who I should talk to?
I recommend @varkor and @eddyb, both don't have a lot of time rn IIRC.
I should also be able to help you out in most cases, so feel free to ask if you want to know anything specific
Thanks for the reply, would just looking at the issues on the rust-lang/rust repo be a good place to start?
Not really :sweat_smile:
most issues are currently either blocked or will be fixed by lazy normalization, const well formedness or const in type dependent paths
type dependent paths: https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/71154
lazy normalization: https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/67890
https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/70507#issuecomment-615268893 should be doable at the moment, but I don't know how difficult this will be.
this is a spurious warning which is related, I looked into this and at least to me the problem was not directly obvious so it is probably also not that easy to fix https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/70225
https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/68104 is also unrelated, but is also not that easy
https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/66451 is both fairly self contained and helpful
That's all I can think of at the moment, I believe that all other issues can't be fixed right now.
Thanks, I'll take a look at 66451 probably
