Hey @Taylor Cramer are you around?

nikomatsakis (Oct 09 2019 at 17:45, on Zulip):

I was wondering if there is an existing repository that contains "design notes" or anything like that. I guess the closest are maybe some of the things on ?

Taylor Cramer (Oct 09 2019 at 17:48, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis I am now

Taylor Cramer (Oct 09 2019 at 17:49, on Zulip):

"design notes" on what sort of things? I think the answer is probably "no"-- the closest is the futures-rfcs repo, but that hasn't been used for a while. Most of the more recent design discussions have been in repo-specific places (e.g. on the issue tracker of futures-rs, rust-lang/rust, the various rustasync repos, etc.)

futures-rfcs might be the kind of thing I am looking for, yeah

nikomatsakis (Oct 09 2019 at 18:17, on Zulip):

I'd like to have a go-to place where we document our progress and design decisions we make along the way. This IntoFuture discussion is a perfect example of something that could live there. (This is just something I'm trying to institute as more general practice.)

nikomatsakis (Oct 09 2019 at 18:17, on Zulip):

Had this repo that I am imagining existed (and maybe it did, in the form of futures-rfcs), it would also have housed the async syntax write-ups, for example
