@csmoe if you collect the users of free vars perhaps into a paper doc or something, we could talk about categorizing them and how to proceed

csmoe (Mar 07 2019 at 17:16, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis I'll clloect them into paper doc. But too late now, I'd ping you tomorrow once done.

@csmoe I have put together a few lines in this doc. These are basically the transcripts from the first closure overview that @nikomatsakis gave us. For a link to all look here. As you are ramping up on closures implementations, would you mind editing the doc and adding more topics and depth to it and editing the lines that you find unclear. I will do the same. The idea is as we are uncovering the closure implementations for ourselves, we put it all in the paper doc. It will grow up to be a great overview for us and then we can add it as a section in the rustc-guide and help transfer the knowledge.
I am suggesting paper doc rather than PR on the rustc-guide as it is much more agile to collaborate iterate on a paper doc.
Let me know what you think about this.

I'm with you :big_smile:
