Hey, I was thinking, we've been casting about for a way for folks to declare that they are "on vacation"... one super simple way would be a stream #vacations and people can make topics with their github user name and post things like 2020-07-20 .. 2020-07-24 or whatever

you can even e-mail the stream...

we could conceivably build tooling eventually, or go the other way and have a web page front end

@nikomatsakis Might want to have that be a more private stream, as people might want to inform governance/teams but not the general public. (Debian vacation notices are private for that exact reason.)

Though I suppose that doesn't fix highfive. :(

I think a private stream would be a good start, while it might not fix highfive prs & issues on the main repo can be re-assigned through triage.

One of the reasons I've been wanting for us to try having something like nextcloud would be to have a way to communicate your free time to others in the org. It has stuff like Free/Busy on calendars for booking meetings.

I was wondering how about people could post in the weekly triage reports in #t-release/triage that they are unavailable for the week so that reassignments / "prs kept aside for a week till you are back" can happen

Private streams require us to maintain membership, I have no idea how we would do that.

Also I think it's kind of important to be able to tell people who are being mentored etc

but I can appreciate not wanting to inform the internet that you'll be away

i think what we could do is split it into - tell internal members (team members / other leads / etc ) about the vacation while for the public it can be "not available this week, or will look into <particular matter / all matters> next week (so that public can't diff between "on vacation" and "busy this week"

That sounds better. "Busy" could have any number of reasons. And it's also enough of a reason to temporarily opt out of being assigned by the highfive bot.

did we create a channel somewhere? I'll be off for all of next week

I think we had discussed putting it in #t-compiler/private but not sure

view this post on Zulip nikomatsakis (Sep 01 2020 at 19:56):

we discussed making a "busy" stream

but not private
