Topic: end date


Xidorn Quan (Dec 02 2019 at 12:39, on Zulip):

Have we decided what's the end date? It seems that the survey should start very soon, but we need to put the end date into the it before publishing, don't we?

Xidorn Quan (Dec 02 2019 at 12:44, on Zulip):

I've put Dec 16 in the Chinese translation and made it open now, so that you are free to publish it anytime with the link I sent to @Santiago Pastorino If a different date is decided later, I'll update accordingly.

apiraino (Dec 02 2019 at 13:04, on Zulip):

me, too. I've put 16 Dec. as closing date :-) I'll amend the closing date if needed

XAMPPRocky (Dec 02 2019 at 13:11, on Zulip):

I think unless someone says otherwise, December 16th should be fine. I'm writing the blog post now so it hopefully be ready to merge by today/tomorrow.

Jan Danielsson (Dec 02 2019 at 13:15, on Zulip):

I just added December 16 as the closing date in the Swedish translation.

nikomatsakis (Dec 02 2019 at 13:27, on Zulip):

@Jasun Carr any thoughts on how long the survey should run? I was going to guess Dec 16 as well -- or 2 weeks, at any rate. I'd like to get started today ideally

nikomatsakis (Dec 02 2019 at 13:28, on Zulip):

ah, I see @Jasun Carr suggested Dec 16 already

nikomatsakis (Dec 02 2019 at 13:29, on Zulip):

@Santiago Pastorino to answer your question from elsewhere, let's go w/ 2 weeks

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 13:29, on Zulip):

I guess we should sync then all and set a starting date?

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 13:30, on Zulip):

doesn't it sound reasonable then to start the survey maybe tomorrow to give everybody time to write the blog post, translate and all that ?

nikomatsakis (Dec 02 2019 at 13:31, on Zulip):

Probably, yes, @XAMPPRocky you mentioned having started a blog post?

XAMPPRocky (Dec 02 2019 at 13:43, on Zulip):

Yeah, I’m writing right now.

XAMPPRocky (Dec 02 2019 at 13:44, on Zulip):

Mostly copying and updating last years post, but also moving the faq to forge

XAMPPRocky (Dec 02 2019 at 13:46, on Zulip):

I also it would be nice to mention @Jasun Carr specifically since they are not on any rust team. @Jasun Carr would you be okay with this and would have anything we should link?

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 15:05, on Zulip):

I guess we need to agree on when are we sending this out, my guess is tomorrow as ealiest

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 15:05, on Zulip):

then end date should be dec 17th

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 15:06, on Zulip):

for that we need the english translation completed with those FIXME removed and then I can ask translator to finish that section up

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 15:06, on Zulip):

it's reasonable to wait until tomorrow to have every translation completed

XAMPPRocky (Dec 02 2019 at 15:06, on Zulip):

Changing the end date again requires even more of the survey's to change. I think it's fine if the survey says the 16th and we leave it up for an extra day.

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 15:10, on Zulip):

ahh I had no idea that the end date was already set

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 15:10, on Zulip):

ok, I'm going to let translators know then

XAMPPRocky (Dec 02 2019 at 15:10, on Zulip):

Well some of the survey's already have the 16th, I think from when Jasun first said it.

XAMPPRocky (Dec 02 2019 at 15:11, on Zulip):

It's like less than half that need changes right now.

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 15:12, on Zulip):

ok, will wait for confirmation and proceed letting translators know then

XAMPPRocky (Dec 02 2019 at 15:13, on Zulip):

@Santiago Pastorino Confirmation on which? I think the 16th has become the date.

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 15:15, on Zulip):

yeah, got your message wrong, will let everyone know

Santiago Pastorino (Dec 02 2019 at 15:22, on Zulip):

have sent the request to change the end date to translators

Jasun Carr (Dec 02 2019 at 16:55, on Zulip):

I also it would be nice to mention Jasun Carr specifically since they are not on any rust team. Jasun Carr would you be okay with this and would have anything we should link?

Yes, I'm fine with being mentioned. As Niko has seen, my personal website is horribly out of date - so if we're going to link to anything, let's do my University page: https://isu.edu/cmp/faculty-and-staff/facultyandstaff/d-jasun-carr.html
