Topic: Winding down a WG: Zulip stream


mw (Nov 22 2019 at 13:19, on Zulip):

Hey folks! WG-profile-guided-optimization is soon going into retirement because it has reached its goals. Is there a way to "archive" the corresponding zulip stream? I didn't find anything to that effect in the zulip docs.

davidtwco (Nov 22 2019 at 14:34, on Zulip):

I don’t think there is.

davidtwco (Nov 22 2019 at 14:34, on Zulip):

It just stops being used as far as I know.

mw (Nov 22 2019 at 15:30, on Zulip):

Alright, I'll just post a "this stream is archived" message then. Thanks for taking a look!

@mw I guess you would also want to provide a PR to the compiler-team repo explaining what's the situation of the working group or just removing it?

mw (Nov 22 2019 at 15:41, on Zulip):

@Santiago Pastorino way ahead of you :P https://github.com/rust-lang/compiler-team/pull/221

zulip does have a setting for each stream that restricts posting solely to organization administrators

pnkfelix (Dec 05 2019 at 10:37, on Zulip):

should we consider doing that for working-groups that have wound down?

davidtwco (Dec 05 2019 at 10:44, on Zulip):

I forgot about that, that’s a good idea.

pnkfelix (Dec 05 2019 at 10:47, on Zulip):

@mw and @nikomatsakis : can you think of any reason to not restrict posting for wound-down WG's ?

pnkfelix (Dec 05 2019 at 10:47, on Zulip):

(the only one I can think of is that people may want to ask Q's about work that was done in the past. But I think such questions can be posted in the #t-compiler stream.)

lqd (Dec 05 2019 at 10:48, on Zulip):

you can restrict posting and post a last message mentioning the wound down status "this wg has wound down, etc etc if you have any questions, please post them in #t-compiler"

mw (Dec 05 2019 at 10:49, on Zulip):

yes, I think if someone _really_ wants to post a question regarding a retired WG, they can do so in #t-compiler

nikomatsakis (Dec 05 2019 at 19:05, on Zulip):

I'm in favor of restricting posting

nikomatsakis (Dec 05 2019 at 19:05, on Zulip):

I believe the "official thing to do" for archived streams is to rename them to z-, believe it or not

nikomatsakis (Dec 05 2019 at 19:05, on Zulip):

or at least I remember seeing some suggestions to that effect

nikomatsakis (Dec 05 2019 at 19:05, on Zulip):

I think the intent is to move it later in the list

nikomatsakis (Dec 05 2019 at 19:05, on Zulip):

seems pretty horrible to me :)
