:wave:, creating this topic so people can introduce themselves and ask for things to do :smile:

Santiago Pastorino (Oct 25 2019 at 13:39, on Zulip):

I have some specific things, others probably too but wanted to mention first that in general we have issues on the issue tracker labeled as E-easy that means that the issue doesn't require you have a lot of experience and some labeled as E-mentor that means that the issue is mentored by someone

Santiago Pastorino (Oct 25 2019 at 14:33, on Zulip):

feel free to create a thread with your name and mention a bit what would you like to do if you know or if that would be anything

Hi, I am Mahmut Bulut. Working on Rust since 2012. Yes 2012, with intermittent intervals. I want to get back on the track. My mentor was oli-obk and I wanted to work on miri related things. Currently there are couple of open and closed PRs to some I-unsound and Miri related things from my side. I am happy to work on these topics. I might need heavy guidance because I didn't contributed for a long time.

another thing that you may be interested in is reading rustc-guide and maybe joining #t-compiler/wg-learning, that's a working group where we try to improve documentation so people can learn how the compiler works

Amanjeev Sethi (Oct 25 2019 at 14:58, on Zulip):

Can confirm it is a great way to start.

more information that you may find interesting ...

Santiago Pastorino (Oct 25 2019 at 16:39, on Zulip):

compiler-team, there you can find working groups and information like experts on different areas so you can find people to ask stuff

there's also the ice-breakers idea, which in particular we have llvm-icebreakers

Daniel Franklin (Dec 17 2019 at 06:08, on Zulip):

@Santiago Pastorino I see 1 closed and 2 open llvm-icebreaker issues on rust-lang/rust. Is that idea still active? Thanks!

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 17 2019 at 11:02, on Zulip):

hi @Daniel Franklin, yes the llvm-icebreaker issues are active

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 17 2019 at 11:03, on Zulip):

it also happens that there haven't been a ton of those issues

nikomatsakis (Dec 17 2019 at 13:42, on Zulip):

@Daniel Franklin LLVM bugs also tend to come in batches -- e.g., when we upgrade to a new version of LLVM, there are suddenly a lot of them, and then things quiet down.

Daniel Franklin (Dec 17 2019 at 15:27, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis Thanks for letting me know
