Topic: I-prioritize #76424 ICE with recursion_limit = 0


triagebot (Sep 07 2020 at 11:38, on Zulip):

@WG-prioritization/alerts issue #76424 has been requested for prioritization.

Procedure

Joshua Nelson (Sep 07 2020 at 11:40, on Zulip):

I'd say P-low? It's a crash, but you have to do it intentionally and the fix is "don't do that"

DPC (Sep 07 2020 at 23:00, on Zulip):

i'd go with p-medium, even if it's p-medium generally you wouldn't want to crash

Joshua Nelson (Sep 07 2020 at 23:00, on Zulip):

I guess my rationale is that I wouldn't want people to focus on this over other P-medium problems

Joshua Nelson (Sep 07 2020 at 23:00, on Zulip):

it's not impacting anyone

apiraino (Sep 08 2020 at 13:01, on Zulip):

Agree with the rationale, can we perhaps "fix" this somewhere else, like in the documentation? People are often experimenting and playing with things

apiraino (Sep 08 2020 at 13:02, on Zulip):

A bit in the same spirit as this other issue

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 09 2020 at 19:30, on Zulip):

ohh hehe, I've just commented in #t-compiler/wg-prioritization/alerts > I-prioritize #76452 Low nproc ulimit causes compiler to cra… about exactly the P-low vs P-medium discussion there

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 09 2020 at 19:30, on Zulip):

agree with P-low here too

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 09 2020 at 19:31, on Zulip):

for instance, I understand @apiraino's and @DPC's thoughts that is a crash

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 09 2020 at 19:31, on Zulip):

the thing in my opinion is that Rust has too many crashes like those

Santiago Pastorino (Sep 09 2020 at 19:31, on Zulip):

if it were a rock solid that never crashes things like those could even be P-high but given that is not the case, I tend to lower the priority

apiraino (Sep 09 2020 at 19:34, on Zulip):

that's fine for me. I just wonder if there is anything actionable for us to do in these cases, even if just forwarding the issue somewhere else

triagebot (Sep 09 2020 at 19:34, on Zulip):

Issue #76424's prioritization request has been removed.

I don't think there's anything else for us to do but if it were we would rather focus on see what to do on P-high or P-critical instead I'd say :)
