Topic: AVR Target Group?


Jake Goulding (Jun 14 2020 at 14:38, on Zulip):

What's the process to propose a new group? AVR was recently merged.

Jonas Schievink (Jun 15 2020 at 19:08, on Zulip):

This PR adds a RISC-V group, maybe just open a similar PR for AVR? https://github.com/rust-lang/team/pull/362

nikomatsakis (Jun 15 2020 at 21:22, on Zulip):

Clearly we need to make a checklist

nikomatsakis (Jun 15 2020 at 21:22, on Zulip):

there are actually a few steps required

Jake Goulding (Jun 16 2020 at 01:12, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis let me know what those are (or a link to the checklist) whenever you figure it out; no huge rush!

Jake Goulding (Jun 24 2020 at 18:04, on Zulip):

Any updates @nikomatsakis ?

nikomatsakis (Jun 25 2020 at 21:20, on Zulip):

whoops forgot about this

nikomatsakis (Jun 25 2020 at 21:20, on Zulip):

@Jake Goulding is this just to make a group, or did we want to declare AVR as Tier 2 or Tier 3

Jake Goulding (Jun 25 2020 at 21:31, on Zulip):

Mostly just the group so we can get notified about O-AVR issues people raise.

It’s nowhere near tier 2. It’s been merged, so I assumed that was tier 3 by default.

nikomatsakis (Jun 26 2020 at 20:51, on Zulip):

OK that sounds fine

nikomatsakis (Jun 26 2020 at 20:51, on Zulip):

yeah we can make a group readily enough

Jake Goulding (Jun 29 2020 at 11:42, on Zulip):

Cool — what should I do next?

XAMPPRocky (Jun 29 2020 at 11:48, on Zulip):

@Jake Goulding Not on the compiler team but I believe the process is that you should propose a major change for adding AVR group similar to this one. https://github.com/rust-lang/compiler-team/issues/293

Jake Goulding (Jun 29 2020 at 11:58, on Zulip):

@XAMPPRocky that's what was suggested earlier, but Niko cautioned that wasn't enough, so I'm waiting to hear what the checklist is so I don't cause people undue work.

XAMPPRocky (Jun 29 2020 at 12:00, on Zulip):

@Jake Goulding Correct me if I’m wrong but that’s a PR adding the AVR group to the team roster. I was suggesting you create a new Major Change Proposal, which would be the first step in getting a group added to team.

XAMPPRocky (Jun 29 2020 at 12:01, on Zulip):

At least that’s how it worked for Windows & ARM.

Jake Goulding (Jun 29 2020 at 12:01, on Zulip):

Ah, true. My point about not inciting Niko's ire is still a point though.

nikomatsakis (Jun 30 2020 at 18:24, on Zulip):

@Jake Goulding OK sorry -- so -- honestly I don't think we need so much process

nikomatsakis (Jun 30 2020 at 18:24, on Zulip):

well, I think making an MCP could be a good idea just for the purposes of letting people know it's happening

nikomatsakis (Jun 30 2020 at 18:24, on Zulip):

I'll make a check-list

nikomatsakis (Jun 30 2020 at 18:24, on Zulip):

but also an Inside Rust blog post might be a good way to advertise

nikomatsakis (Jun 30 2020 at 18:25, on Zulip):

this isn't really taking on any new support obligations

Jake Goulding (Jun 30 2020 at 18:27, on Zulip):

OK doke, I can start up a MCP soon.

Jake Goulding (Jun 30 2020 at 18:27, on Zulip):

Thank you!

nikomatsakis (Jun 30 2020 at 18:28, on Zulip):

I'm creating a forge page with a list of steps

nikomatsakis (Jun 30 2020 at 18:28, on Zulip):

and I think I agree with @XAMPPRocky that, as a general process, let's make an MCP be a first step, it's easy and simple

nikomatsakis (Jun 30 2020 at 18:38, on Zulip):

@Jake Goulding draft -- have to run
