So I was starting to do a kind of "High-level Design Plan" background doc for the Chalk Integration meeting... except that I know I am repeating material from the rustc-guide. (I didn't get super far yet, was mostly "playing around" to try and decide what I want to include)

Maybe it's better to just point folks at the rustc-guide, except that at least some of the plans that @scalexm and I were discussing are ever-so-slightly different than what is there. But then again I feel like it's useful to have a kind of "outline" for what we would discuss in the meeting.

cc @tmandry, who was writing high-level docs as I recall.

I'll probably poke at it a bit more later and try to at least get the "outline" more in place

tmandry (Jan 30 2019 at 22:02, on Zulip):

I think it could be healthy to continue iterating on how we talk about this stuff at a high level :)

tmandry (Jan 30 2019 at 22:03, on Zulip):

in particular, knowing what "level" to write the rustc guide at has been somewhat of a challenge in the past, I'd say

tmandry (Jan 30 2019 at 22:03, on Zulip):

and iterating within the existing structure is harder

tmandry (Jan 30 2019 at 22:05, on Zulip):

that said, you could send people to the guide. my main worry would be that the traits chapter is just long

tmandry (Jan 30 2019 at 22:07, on Zulip):

but I'm sure that cherry-picking the right sections would alleviate that

tmandry (Jan 30 2019 at 22:08, on Zulip):

also, the content you have in the paper doc looks nice, it would be good to incorporate into the guide somehow
