@WG-prioritization/alerts issue #80545 has been requested for prioritization.

Procedure

How do we treat issues such as this? This affects the tokenization of doc comments. My first thought would be a P-medium because it's annoying and can break your existing code documentation, but it's not like your code suddenly wont compile anymore

Wesley Wiser (Dec 31 2020 at 12:03, on Zulip):

Yeah, seems at most P-medium to me.

apiraino (Dec 31 2020 at 12:13, on Zulip):

also, it does not affect rustdoc (as Joshua Nelson ) points out, so I would even say the documentation the user produces for publishing is not affected - is that correct? If yes, maybe even P-low?

Wesley Wiser (Dec 31 2020 at 12:22, on Zulip):

I guess since it's a proc macro, it could be doing something based on the content of the comments so any change could theoretically break a proc macro. Seems very unlikely though.

Wesley Wiser (Dec 31 2020 at 12:23, on Zulip):

Arguably the current behavior seems more correct to me but I'm haven't used proc macros a lot

Issue #80545's prioritization request has been removed.
