Topic: New name for E-mentor

matklad (May 04 2020 at 08:23, on Zulip):

Hey, what would be the better name for our usage of E-mentor? It was cargo culted from Rust, but it doesn't mean that the issue has an active mentoring person. Rather, it means something more specific and immediate -- the issue includes pointers to relevant code and/or tests.

It's still a good idea to look for this label if you want something you can start with easily, but I worry that the current name inflates expectations.

:raised_hand: my expectations were a bit inflated at first ;)

matklad (May 04 2020 at 08:56, on Zulip):

I wish we could do a real E-mentor, but it doesn't seem feasible at the moment sadly :-(

matklad (May 04 2020 at 08:57, on Zulip):

Hm, I guess, E-has-instructions would be a good name

Timo Freiberg (May 04 2020 at 09:02, on Zulip):

i think being approachable on zulip is already very helpful

Coenen Benjamin (May 04 2020 at 09:10, on Zulip):

Same for me :) I had this kind of expactations regarding the label :) but yes, at least being available for some questions on zulip or in the issue if it's feasible is already very helpful
