Topic: WebAssembly Target Group?


Alex Crichton (Jun 10 2020 at 18:46, on Zulip):

I saw the recent inception of Windows/ARM target groups (nice!) and wanted to reach out about wasm as well. I'm not sure that it's really necessary at this time, especially if there's process involved, but if the need arises I'd be happy to help field any wasm-specific questions for targets and such.

Alex Crichton (Jun 10 2020 at 18:47, on Zulip):

I basically want to just extend an invitation that if wasm-specific question arise I'm happy to be pinged to help out (and I suspect others would be too!). I also suspect, however, that the need for a whole target group is much more urgent for Windows/ARM than it is for wasm, which is much more nascent still.

Alex Crichton (Jun 10 2020 at 18:47, on Zulip):

In any case wanted to bring this up in case it helps in the future!

:+1:

Santiago Pastorino (Jun 10 2020 at 18:56, on Zulip):

I think we should create this group

Santiago Pastorino (Jun 10 2020 at 19:00, on Zulip):

@Alex Crichton there's a checklist about what is needed here https://github.com/rust-lang/compiler-team/issues/282 in case you want to jump into this, otherwise maybe just opening an issue about this in the repo would be the way to go :)

nikomatsakis (Jun 10 2020 at 20:43, on Zulip):

@Alex Crichton that's a good idea, yes

nikomatsakis (Jun 10 2020 at 20:43, on Zulip):

that reminds me --

nikomatsakis (Jun 10 2020 at 20:43, on Zulip):

@Santiago Pastorino I think we should modify the rustc-dev-guide so that rather than having a distinct page for each target group

nikomatsakis (Jun 10 2020 at 20:43, on Zulip):

we have like a kind of "meta page" for notification groups for distinct targets

Santiago Pastorino (Jun 11 2020 at 13:41, on Zulip):

agreed

Santiago Pastorino (Jun 11 2020 at 13:42, on Zulip):

we can have just one meta page as you've said and also if there's some particular information about a target group we can briefly explain it there

Alex Crichton (Jun 11 2020 at 15:26, on Zulip):

Ok thanks for the input! I'll look to seeing if I can file some things for this in the near future, will keep y'all posted

nikomatsakis (Jun 11 2020 at 15:59, on Zulip):

@Alex Crichton I can set it up later today maybe, what names?

nikomatsakis (Jun 11 2020 at 15:59, on Zulip):

people can add themselves later too

Alex Crichton (Jun 11 2020 at 16:00, on Zulip):

I'd definitely be on it, and I suspect @Nick Fitzgerald may be interested in being cc'd too

Alex Crichton (Jun 11 2020 at 16:00, on Zulip):

I was thinking there's likely others interested too, but tbh it's mostly me at this point and if it's just me getting pinged it may not be worthwhile having a whole group

nikomatsakis (Jun 11 2020 at 16:01, on Zulip):

it's not so much work and I guess other people might join over time

nikomatsakis (Jun 11 2020 at 16:01, on Zulip):

eventually I'd like to have groups like this for all the targets we support so...
