Topic: Feature request policy

It would be good to write down what to do with language feature requests that are opened as issues on rust-lang/rust.

Currently I close them and direct the author to the RFCs repo and the internals forum, but it would be useful to have a reference for what to do, so that we don't inconsistently enforce this. For example, I'm thinking that just transferring the issues to rust-lang/rfcs instead of closing it might be better (not that there's a big practical difference, but it might be nicer towards the issue author).

We also might want to add an issue "template" for feature requests that links to IRLO

Similar to the one for security vulnerabilities

Strong :thumbs_up: on these, I've wanted to write up a policy for a long time. FWIW I think the way to go here is for someone (perhaps you?) to write this up on forge.rust-lang.org and we can FCP it with T-lang/libs for their "areas" of feature requests, I imagine the policies might be a bit different.

but rfcs repo use issues for rfcs right? might be misleading to just transfer it

They use PRs IIRC

No, the issue tracker there is basically just a wishlist that anyone can add to, so that fits

Transferring is more work than closing though, so I think we should keep closing them

Why is it more work?

view this post on Zulip Léo Lanteri Thauvin (Oct 20 2020 at 20:42):

Because you need to label it after transfering it?

view this post on Zulip Jonas Schievink [he/him] (Oct 20 2020 at 20:51):

No, because it requires more actions and a page refresh because the transfer isn't instant
