Topic: maintenance and triage plan


nikomatsakis (May 10 2019 at 15:17, on Zulip):

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

nikomatsakis (May 13 2019 at 17:41, on Zulip):

@oli raised the idea of a needs-mvce label on #t-compiler, which I think is kind of the same idea

pnkfelix (May 16 2019 at 19:00, on Zulip):

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.

nikomatsakis (May 28 2019 at 13:27, on Zulip):

@pnkfelix not sure if you've had any further thoughts ;)

nikomatsakis (May 28 2019 at 13:27, on Zulip):

I haven't but it'd be good to chat about it a bit at some point

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:27, on Zulip):

ooh boy

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:27, on Zulip):

uh

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:28, on Zulip):

really bad timing on my part, I just realized that I'm going to be absent on Friday

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:28, on Zulip):

(and Thursday)

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:29, on Zulip):

but I can put together a document ... tomorrow... I think

nikomatsakis (May 28 2019 at 13:38, on Zulip):

well, @pnkfelix, we could potentially defer

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:39, on Zulip):

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

nikomatsakis (May 28 2019 at 13:39, on Zulip):

Still, it might be good to defer until you can be present.

nikomatsakis (May 28 2019 at 13:39, on Zulip):

But making up some sort of doc is a good idea regardless

nikomatsakis (May 28 2019 at 13:39, on Zulip):

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed this week too so ... I wouldn't mind

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:40, on Zulip):

right. Deferring that meeting would be fine

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:40, on Zulip):

you could also reach out to eddyb

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:41, on Zulip):

and see if they would like to do the meeting that was hypothetically scheduled for last week but then got punted

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:41, on Zulip):

(though that would require last minute prep on their part, so who knows)

nikomatsakis (May 28 2019 at 13:41, on Zulip):

there was a meeting scheduled for last week?

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:41, on Zulip):

well, no

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:41, on Zulip):

there was no meeting scheduled

nikomatsakis (May 28 2019 at 13:41, on Zulip):

I'd be inclined to encourage them to get something ready for next planning meeting

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:41, on Zulip):

but at the planning meeting, I believe there was talk of some topic that eddyb was interested in ?

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:41, on Zulip):

True, that is probably the best plan

pnkfelix (May 28 2019 at 13:42, on Zulip):

rather than an ad-hoc last minute ill-defined meeting.
