Hey everyone!

Yoshua Wuyts (Jul 02 2019 at 16:32, on Zulip):

I believe there's supposed to be a meeting today?

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:33, on Zulip):

yup!

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:33, on Zulip):

:wave:

Yoshua Wuyts (Jul 02 2019 at 16:34, on Zulip):

I can share my update first: I've started on the streams chapter over the weekend, but didn't get very far so don't have anything to show quite yet

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:34, on Zulip):

I'd like to suggest that we start by discussing the line and chapter # thing, as I think that has potentially significant consequences in terms of effort merging things

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:34, on Zulip):

^^cool! I'm excited to see it <3

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:34, on Zulip):

niko, were you going to review https://github.com/rust-lang-nursery/mdBook/pull/851 ? cbenoit mentioned they wanted more feedback

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:35, on Zulip):

yeah we really should land that

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:35, on Zulip):

I guess I can review it

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:35, on Zulip):

the alternative would be to pick up https://github.com/tailwind/mdbook-bookimport

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:35, on Zulip):

the current system is really hard to maintain

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:35, on Zulip):

agreed. @nikomatsakis you'd rather work to land https://github.com/rust-lang-nursery/mdBook/pull/851 than use https://github.com/tailwind/mdbook-bookimport ?

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:36, on Zulip):

no I have no strong opinion

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:36, on Zulip):

I think i'd rather use the thing that requires less work on my part :)

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:36, on Zulip):

which is probably mdbook-bookimport

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:36, on Zulip):

heh, okay-- it seems like potentially a better ecosystem outcome to get that other PR merged, but I'm happy to send a PR today switching us over to mdbook-bookimport

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:37, on Zulip):

it'd be a bit sad to lose the impetus for getting that PR finished up

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:38, on Zulip):

okay, so I'll do that

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:38, on Zulip):

well

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:38, on Zulip):

and I guess remove the chapter numbers as well

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:39, on Zulip):

since those seemed similarly problematic

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:39, on Zulip):

though they are helpful for navigating

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:39, on Zulip):

the PR is pretty small

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:39, on Zulip):

I just don't know the codebase at all or really who the maintainers are etc

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:39, on Zulip):

I think there may not really be any?

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:40, on Zulip):

seems like it has been azerupi and michael-f-bryan historically

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:40, on Zulip):

ok I take that back

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:40, on Zulip):

I see recent commits, as well

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:40, on Zulip):

yeah, ehuss has done some stuff it looks like

nikomatsakis (Jul 02 2019 at 16:40, on Zulip):

maybe I'll ping ehuss

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:40, on Zulip):

sg

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:40, on Zulip):

lemme know what happens there

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:40, on Zulip):

Moving on to the other sections

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:41, on Zulip):

@Yoshua Wuyts is still working on the streams stuff

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:41, on Zulip):

and I'm still working on the select! and related sections

Yoshua Wuyts (Jul 02 2019 at 16:41, on Zulip):

I've talked to Steve about the Pin section, and he seemed keen to help

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:41, on Zulip):

cool!

Yoshua Wuyts (Jul 02 2019 at 16:42, on Zulip):

Though we haven't agreed on anything, so I probably need to reach out again to see if I can get him to attend the meeting (:

Yoshua Wuyts (Jul 02 2019 at 16:42, on Zulip):

(I think that may be a good starting point)

Taylor Cramer (Jul 02 2019 at 16:42, on Zulip):

I think that's basically all that's going on at the moment. Was there anything else y'all wanted to chat about?

Yoshua Wuyts (Jul 02 2019 at 16:42, on Zulip):

I don't have anything else (:
