is there some straightforward path to do this today?
I believe the command for that was
./x.py test --stage 0 src/libstd.
I couldn't find that in the rustc dev guide
is there some place I should have looked?
also that still requires pulling in the LLVM subtree thing :(
and apparently still needs cmake to be installed, which shouldn't be needed?
@Dirkjan Ochtman No it's not in the guide, but we are working on adding it: https://github.com/rust-lang/rustc-dev-guide/pull/731
And, yes, it still requires pulling all of the submodules, which is annoying. I don't think you should need cmake, though, if you use system LLVM
I was talk with simulacrum and they said it should be possible to streamline the process of contributing to std a lot (e.g. just using cargo eventually)
