Topic: Add S-waiting-on-help?


Joshua Nelson (Aug 06 2020 at 00:50, on Zulip):

Some PRs need action from the author, but the author doesn't know what to do. See for example https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/75127 and https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/71780. These shouldn't be marked as S-waiting-on-review because they're not ready for review, but S-waiting-on-author puts the onus on the author to figure things out.

Joshua Nelson (Aug 06 2020 at 00:51, on Zulip):

I think S-waiting-on-help would communicate the situation more clearly to the triage team without ending up with situations like https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/72412#issuecomment-641929056 where the triage comment just makes the author uncomfortable because they don't know what to do.

Yuki Okushi (Aug 06 2020 at 02:23, on Zulip):

hm wait, it's unrelated but we shouldn't close #72412?

Yuki Okushi (Aug 06 2020 at 02:24, on Zulip):

the idea of S-waiting-on-help sounds good to me

Joshua Nelson (Aug 06 2020 at 02:34, on Zulip):

what's the procedure for adding that? should I just do it right now? :laughing:

Yuki Okushi (Aug 06 2020 at 02:38, on Zulip):

usually we can add some other labels e.g. areas, features, diagnostics, etc. without discussion iirc but in this case it's better to hear some thoughts from other members (maybe T-compiler?), I think. anyway I don't think I'm the right member to decide :P

Joshua Nelson (Aug 06 2020 at 13:15, on Zulip):

Following up because I don't want it to get lost - should I raise this in #t-compiler/meetings ?

:+1:

DPC (Aug 06 2020 at 14:54, on Zulip):

i mean it's not compiler specific, it can be useful to other teams as well

Joshua Nelson (Aug 06 2020 at 15:27, on Zulip):

should we move this to #general then?

LeSeulArtichaut (Aug 06 2020 at 18:18, on Zulip):

Also, maybe a S-waiting-on-mcp might be good too?

Joshua Nelson (Aug 06 2020 at 21:46, on Zulip):

I think S-blocked works pretty well for that

Joshua Nelson (Aug 06 2020 at 21:46, on Zulip):

but it wouldn't hurt

Yuki Okushi (Aug 06 2020 at 21:47, on Zulip):

I think it makes sense given we have S-waiting-on-fcp

Joshua Nelson (Aug 13 2020 at 13:33, on Zulip):

brought it up in the stream for the meeting for this week
