Stream: t-compiler/wg-meta

Topic: self-profile WG


mw (Feb 28 2019 at 11:39, on Zulip):

I'm wondering if self-profiling should be its own WG. It has a clear goal, a clear set of people working on it, and it's complex enough to be an ongoing effort for a few months at least. cc @nikomatsakis @Wesley Wiser

nikomatsakis (Feb 28 2019 at 16:20, on Zulip):

@Wesley Wiser I also feel like the self-profiling stuff might make for a nice WG, presuming you're still planning to push on that. Thoughts? I would mainly imagine that we lay out a (brief) roadmap, create a stream, and then check in on in the meetings every once in a while to see how you're doing (not necessarily that it's a big mentoring opportunity, although I wouldn't be surprised if we were able to get a people to hack on things with you that way)

(cc @mw, @eddyb, who else?)

You might want to see this thread.

@mw beat you to the idea by a few hours.

nikomatsakis (Feb 28 2019 at 16:28, on Zulip):

lol ok

nikomatsakis (Feb 28 2019 at 16:28, on Zulip):

I was thinking it yesterday dang it

csmoe (Feb 28 2019 at 16:28, on Zulip):

it will be great to have such a WG to maintain a list of rustc's Gandalf

nikomatsakis (Feb 28 2019 at 16:29, on Zulip):

:+1: from me!

Wesley Wiser (Feb 28 2019 at 18:49, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis Yep, I'm still pushing on that. @mw actually just r+'d some more changes of mine related to this. I think there's probably enough stuff to work on that if anyone else were interested, we could find stuff for them to do. So a WG makes sense to me.

davidtwco (Feb 28 2019 at 18:50, on Zulip):

(a small FYI that I've merged the other topic into this one so there aren't two)

Wesley Wiser (Feb 28 2019 at 18:52, on Zulip):

@mw I guess we should probably chat at some point and figure out what the next steps are for the project. I know you have some ideas around improving the performance and representation of data in the profiler. I'd like to see the export format stabilize a bit so we can start building tools to interpret the data.

Wesley Wiser (Feb 28 2019 at 18:53, on Zulip):

I'm sure there's other considerations as well

mw (Mar 01 2019 at 09:13, on Zulip):

Yes, that makes sense and sounds like a good topic for a first WG meeting :)

mw (Mar 01 2019 at 09:20, on Zulip):

@davidtwco could you set up a wg-self-profile stream?

mw (Mar 01 2019 at 09:22, on Zulip):

@Wesley Wiser do you want to set up the working group in the compiler-team repo?

davidtwco (Mar 01 2019 at 09:41, on Zulip):

@mw #t-compiler/wg-self-profile

mw (Mar 01 2019 at 09:41, on Zulip):

@davidtwco awesome!

davidtwco (Mar 01 2019 at 09:42, on Zulip):

Similarly, a user group with you and Wesley exists.

Wesley Wiser (Mar 01 2019 at 10:25, on Zulip):

@mw Sure! I can do that.

mw (Mar 01 2019 at 10:26, on Zulip):

:tada:
