Another idea for an ICE-breakers group: one focused on diagnostic improvements (cc @Esteban Küber)
I've been trying to keep the diagnostics backlog well groomed, with good accurate labeling to help with finding things to fix, but some diagnostics improvements are not suitable for newcomers because they end up touching a large part of the compiler.
I could do with some help writing mentoring instructions :)
The basic setup would be something like this
that is the chapter about LLVM
the idea is: if you are someone who is newly signed up to fix diagnostics, give some tips as to what steps help to get started -- maybe some pointers to e.g. ripgrep for the error message, some tips that explain our diagnostic APIs (if we have any...)
I'll take some time in the upcoming weeks to write some tips down
