@WG-async-foundations

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:04, on Zulip):

The big news is that async/await is in FCP.

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:05, on Zulip):

With that said, we still have some issues out tagged as blocking.

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:05, on Zulip):

https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/61949 is probably the biggest (the ->Self with lifetimes thing) and is currently waiting on a crater run for https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/62849

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:06, on Zulip):

There's been lots of good work lately on the test coverage front by @Ryan Gorup and @David Laban

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:07, on Zulip):

@Jesper Steen Møller posted some investigation on https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/62517

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:07, on Zulip):

If it comes down to it and no one has time, I don't think that one necessarily needs to be a blocker, but if anyone has time to dig deeper that would be a great one to take a look at.

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:08, on Zulip):

It's an ICE, and an uncommon-ish one at that, so it's not something that's going to be a backcompat hazard or a usability showstopper IMO.

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:09, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis is still at work on the reference issue https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/62566

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:09, on Zulip):

And then there's https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/63225, which I know exactly why it's happening but don't have a great idea about how to fix. I'll leave a comment.

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:12, on Zulip):

Left this comment: https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/63225#issuecomment-518760862

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:12, on Zulip):

That's the end of the blocking issues.

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:12, on Zulip):

So I think the only one that's really "unknown" at this point is https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/62517

Taylor Cramer (Aug 06 2019 at 17:12, on Zulip):

Does anyone here have time to investigate?

nikomatsakis (Aug 07 2019 at 09:43, on Zulip):

I will try to investigate #62517 and maybe a few other things tomorrow morning. I was planning to get up early and put in some time. (Or maybe later today -- it's about noon here -- but probably tomorrow.)

nikomatsakis (Aug 07 2019 at 09:43, on Zulip):

( If anybody else is able to, even better. :) )

nikomatsakis (Aug 07 2019 at 09:44, on Zulip):

Thanks @Taylor Cramer for the summary, super useful

nikomatsakis (Aug 08 2019 at 08:40, on Zulip):

I will try to investigate #62517 and maybe a few other things tomorrow morning. I was planning to get up early and put in some time. (Or maybe later today -- it's about noon here -- but probably tomorrow.)

pending fix in https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/63376
