BTW -- I have a dr's appt so I won't be around for meeting tomorrow -- maybe we want to chat a bit async instead? The main thing I've on my mind is figuring out how to make the ICE breaker stuff happen. It'd be good to enumerate out the tasks for that and maybe we can split them?

davidtwco (Sep 11 2019 at 16:24, on Zulip):

That plan makes sense to me.

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 12 2019 at 18:15, on Zulip):

sorry, I forgot to answer but yeah, seems good to me too

nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 10:33, on Zulip):

ok well we obviously didn't have the meeting, but I think the required steps are:

nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 10:35, on Zulip):

That bot would assign the label and write something like:

Hey LLVM icebreakers! This bug has been identified as a good
"LLVM ice-breaking candidate". In case it's useful, here are some
[general instructions] for tackling these sorts of bugs. Maybe take a look?

cc @foo @bar @baz ...
nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 10:36, on Zulip):

oh and

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 14:09, on Zulip):

nice write up

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 14:09, on Zulip):

yeah, we need all that

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 14:09, on Zulip):

and we need to organize ourselves to see how we can tackle those things

nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 15:14, on Zulip):

a lot of those are pretty small items

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 15:54, on Zulip):

yes, some items are little things

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 15:55, on Zulip):

what I was wondering is how should we split

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 15:55, on Zulip):

do you want to assign tasks? I'd be happy to take some that you want me to tackle

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 15:56, on Zulip):

maybe we should just do the short ones and open issues for the large ones?

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 15:56, on Zulip):

actually I think the only really larger one is ...

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 15:59, on Zulip):

we need a guide that helps people to get started with this sort of bug

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 15:59, on Zulip):

the others seems shorter

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 15:59, on Zulip):

anyway, let's split tasks?

nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 19:31, on Zulip):

let's start by opening an issue on compiler-team repo and copying my list of bullets into there

nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 19:32, on Zulip):

we can create the label, I guess something like ICEBreaker-LLVM ? that can also wait. The hardest part will be picking a nice color :P

nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 19:32, on Zulip):

the main splittable thing is the bot work ..? I think the guide would probably take a few minutes to draft up

nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 19:33, on Zulip):

ok that's not true

nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 19:33, on Zulip):

it'd take a lot longer to do properly

nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 19:33, on Zulip):

but I got no feedback here so we'll probably start with something ungreat

nikomatsakis (Sep 13 2019 at 19:33, on Zulip):

and maybe ask for help in the announcement in improving it :)

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 19:51, on Zulip):

:+1: seems good

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 19:54, on Zulip):

I can go ahead an open an issue

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 13 2019 at 19:58, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis https://github.com/rust-lang/compiler-team/issues/174 feel free to edit
