So in compiler-team#90 I proposed that we have a meeting to review a plan to improve the state of maintenance / triage. But I don't really have a plan yet. We decided in today's planning meeting to tentatively schedule this for May 31, but we gotta come up with some details. I'm opening this topic to discuss.
I'm pinging @T-compiler and @T-compiler/WG-meta to get an idea of folks that may be interested.
Here are some things I think:
Here is another thing I think:
Ive found myself wanting a "needsrepro" label distinct from needstest
@oli raised the idea of a
needs-mvce label on #t-compiler, which I think is kind of the same idea
note to self (and I guess others, since I'm posting this here): it would be good to collect all the ideas and put them into some structured document before the corresponding compiler steering meeting, currently scheduled for Friday May 31st.
@pnkfelix not sure if you've had any further thoughts ;)
I haven't but it'd be good to chat about it a bit at some point
really bad timing on my part, I just realized that I'm going to be absent on Friday
but I can put together a document ... tomorrow... I think
well, @pnkfelix, we could potentially defer
I would like that, but it wouldn't be a terrible exercise for me to try to put together the aforementioned document in short order
Still, it might be good to defer until you can be present.
But making up some sort of doc is a good idea regardless
I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed this week too so ... I wouldn't mind
right. Deferring that meeting would be fine
you could also reach out to eddyb
and see if they would like to do the meeting that was hypothetically scheduled for last week but then got punted
(though that would require last minute prep on their part, so who knows)
there was a meeting scheduled for last week?
there was no meeting scheduled
I'd be inclined to encourage them to get something ready for next planning meeting
but at the planning meeting, I believe there was talk of some topic that eddyb was interested in ?
True, that is probably the best plan
rather than an ad-hoc last minute ill-defined meeting.
