Topic: llvm ice-breaker registration


nikomatsakis (Oct 02 2019 at 20:11, on Zulip):

Hey all, we're hoping to announce this wild and crazy LLVM ICE-breaker idea soon. We've got a draft announcement here and I've created some text in the rustc-guide. The last step is that we're building the "registration mechanism". Until that is done, I'm just going to create this topic (and link to it from the rustc-guide, just in case) so people can list their names as being interested.

Nikita Popov (Oct 02 2019 at 21:10, on Zulip):

Should we start labelling some issues? https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/63959 and https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/62896 seem like obvious candidates, though both are tough due to platform requirements. https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/62612 looks simpler, probably nobody tried reproducing that yet.

Hey @rkruppe -- are you interested in being notified?

nikomatsakis (Oct 10 2019 at 18:08, on Zulip):

@Nikita Popov I'm going to make a formal announcement "very soon", so maybe we start after that?

rkruppe (Oct 10 2019 at 18:18, on Zulip):

Sure, sign me up

Announcement (not yet merged): https://github.com/rust-lang/blog.rust-lang.org/pull/417

One problem is that the tool which will automatically ping all the people is not yet written, that is https://github.com/rust-lang/triagebot/issues/169

nikomatsakis (Oct 10 2019 at 18:32, on Zulip):

We figured in the meantime we could do it manually though that may be annoying

nikomatsakis (Oct 10 2019 at 18:32, on Zulip):

Not sure how long it will take to do those changes, maybe @simulacrum can say

nikomatsakis (Oct 10 2019 at 18:32, on Zulip):

@rkruppe if you like you could test run the instructions for how to join and see if they seem clear enough :)

rkruppe (Oct 10 2019 at 18:38, on Zulip):

Went well enough, but I think it would be nice to link to the teams repository and the right file directly. I went to the example PR and navigate a bunch from there which is a bit involved (and I've actually navigated the teams repo before).

rkruppe (Oct 10 2019 at 18:41, on Zulip):

Oh I should add that the reason I navigated it in github's UI is because I'm already on a team so I don't need the cargo run step and so I just did the PR in the UI, not by cloning the repo

Presuming no blockers to implementing the changes probably a couple hours of work - maybe a day or two

thanks!

I don't know where to post this exactly, but here seems most appropriate: just an FYI that several people have opened PRs to apply for the LLVM ICE-breaker group in response to the blog post https://github.com/rust-lang/team/pulls
