Topic: New RFC Process


Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 17:40, on Zulip):

I was talking to @Josh Triplett about the RFC process with respect to this rfc I'm working on https://github.com/rust-lang/rfcs/pull/2895

Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 17:41, on Zulip):

and he mentioned the new RFC process that is being worked on rn and said I could potentially use it with my RFC (and possibly the two-three follow-up RFCs I plan on making)

Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 17:41, on Zulip):

so yea, this is me volunteering

Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 17:41, on Zulip):

i am interested in using the new RFC process

Josh Triplett (May 05 2020 at 18:08, on Zulip):

cc @nikomatsakis

Josh Triplett (May 05 2020 at 18:09, on Zulip):

I think these might be good test cases for the new project-group-based workflow.

nikomatsakis (May 05 2020 at 19:18, on Zulip):

@Jane Lusby I wanted to ping you about that!

nikomatsakis (May 05 2020 at 19:18, on Zulip):

I'm glad @Josh Triplett did

nikomatsakis (May 05 2020 at 19:18, on Zulip):

what aspects in particular was he referring to, perhaps :)

nikomatsakis (May 05 2020 at 19:18, on Zulip):

and also, I see this is T-libs ..?

Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 19:29, on Zulip):

oh yea, I wasn't really paying attention to the diff between T-lang and T-libs

Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 19:30, on Zulip):

Josh mentioned having a project group, shepherd, and a liason

Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 19:30, on Zulip):

where the project group would handle the design process, and the shepherd would be in charge of gathering concensus and organizing everything

Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 19:31, on Zulip):

where I would presumably be the shepherd

Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 19:31, on Zulip):

and I do not have a liason :grimacing:

nikomatsakis (May 05 2020 at 19:37, on Zulip):

yep, ok

Josh Triplett (May 05 2020 at 19:41, on Zulip):

@Jane Lusby It seemed like some of the proposals you had might potentially be language, but if they're all libs, then yeah, you need to be working with the libs team. :)

Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 19:44, on Zulip):

i think its all libs, is the new rfc process lang team specific?

Josh Triplett (May 05 2020 at 19:45, on Zulip):

Thus far it is, yes.

Josh Triplett (May 05 2020 at 19:45, on Zulip):

Other teams might be interested in adopting it in the future, but we can't speak for those teams.

Jane Lusby (May 05 2020 at 19:48, on Zulip):

oh, okay, then i guess i shall chill with the current process

XAMPPRocky (May 05 2020 at 21:01, on Zulip):

@Jane Lusby It would be worth opening a topic about the changes in #t-libs if you haven't already. A lot of the members are there.
