I have not made progress on my task (cargo integration with jobserver), but I would like to spend a bit of time discussing a potential idea I had which is potentially a simpler replacement than what we originally had in mind. Essentially instead of fully replacing the jobserver, the jobserver crate when configuring a process with the file descriptors would create a new pipe for each process and spawn up a global, single, thread which epolls across all of the process file descriptors. I think in theory this should be easier to implement but am interested in hearing what @Alex Crichton thinks.

@WG-parallel-rustc with the above in mind, I don't know if it makes sense for all of us to meet...

(and maybe even we can discuss that idea async with Alex)

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 16 2019 at 18:07, on Zulip):

I'm still with some Mir-opt stuff and haven't jumped back into this

Alex Crichton (Dec 16 2019 at 18:10, on Zulip):

I'm ok discussing sync today

simulacrum (Dec 16 2019 at 18:15, on Zulip):

okay, let's do that then

@Alex Crichton do you want to generate a zoom link?
