Topic: liaison


nikomatsakis (Mar 30 2021 at 16:41, on Zulip):

Hey folks! So in principle we need a lang team liaison. I'm not sure who that should be -- I think we should clarify how much of a role we really expect to need. I'd be ok with being someone that can be pinged when stuff arises, and we will typically do monthyl check-ins on progress, but I don't think I can offer much in the way of following along with threads or discussions.

nikomatsakis (Mar 30 2021 at 16:41, on Zulip):

Are there other @T-lang folks who would be interested in doing more?

Josh Triplett (Mar 30 2021 at 16:43, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis Given recent discussions about the liaison role, it seems worth confirming: does this need to be a @T-lang member, or could we potentially have someone else fill the role and provide semi-regular updates for us?

nikomatsakis (Mar 30 2021 at 16:43, on Zulip):

Yeah, I was thinking about that too.

nikomatsakis (Mar 30 2021 at 16:43, on Zulip):

I don't know :)

nikomatsakis (Mar 30 2021 at 16:44, on Zulip):

I've been debating in my head how liaisons fit into the proposed alternative structure, but I still think it largely makes sense that every active lang team project should have somebody who is supposed to be the rep from the lang team proper, though I think that rep doesn't necessarily have to be super active in the discussions.

nikomatsakis (Mar 30 2021 at 16:44, on Zulip):

Liaison != lead, in other words

Josh Triplett (Mar 30 2021 at 18:40, on Zulip):

We should take this to another thread rather than the one specific to this project.

nikomatsakis (Mar 30 2021 at 18:50, on Zulip):

Agreed

Connor Horman (Jul 14 2021 at 12:15, on Zulip):

Has there been an official liason assigned yet? If so, should they be included in the project-group team file?

nikomatsakis (Jul 15 2021 at 18:19, on Zulip):

No, and yes!

nikomatsakis (Jul 15 2021 at 18:20, on Zulip):

I think I'd be willing to liaison this

nikomatsakis (Jul 15 2021 at 18:20, on Zulip):

Though it might be better to find someone else

nikomatsakis (Jul 15 2021 at 18:20, on Zulip):

Josh and I were planning to do a meeting and go over projects and things

nikomatsakis (Jul 15 2021 at 18:21, on Zulip):

Note that per the initiative process, this would be in the Experimentation phase, which means it's fine to land code, though we want to mark the feature gate as experimental

Alright. Until it's resolved, should I just list you in members/leads for the project-group file?

nikomatsakis (Jul 16 2021 at 10:19, on Zulip):

@Connor Horman Yes. That implies that we should setup a monthly meeting :)

nikomatsakis (Jul 16 2021 at 10:19, on Zulip):

The other question is who is the owner

nikomatsakis (Jul 16 2021 at 10:19, on Zulip):

I am assuming that you are interested, @Connor Horman?

nikomatsakis (Jul 16 2021 at 10:19, on Zulip):

If so, I'd like to touch base on that at some point, to talk through the role

Connor Horman (Jul 16 2021 at 10:20, on Zulip):

Yes, I can probably take that role.

nikomatsakis (Jul 16 2021 at 10:20, on Zulip):

(One of the things I want to do is to be intentional and careful about who we pick for owners, since the new process gives some substantial weight to the role)
