I saw this blog post by Paul McKenney and it got me thinking--- maybe it'd be useful have a CTCFT where we cover Rust in Linux. I know I am very curious to better understand the challenges there, I imagine there are lots of ways it might affect prioritization decisions or other things. (In general, I like the idea of focusing on interesting applications of Rust and trying to get a better feeling for what's working and what's not.)
Curious what people think?
seems reasonable, I don't see why cross team collab can't include team members / contributors who are implementing major features in the rust project to help with integrating rust in their external project
though I do worry about how it may work in practice. Like, if they raise some issues related to some team who has no member present the venue may not really provide as much benefit.
Main way to address that is to promote the CTCFT to each team, right? @nikomatsakis , do you keep track of which teams have representation at each CTCFT? If you do/did, then you could do targetted soliication of participation by reaching out to the missing team(s).
I don't, but I like the idea, and I think that if we were going to schedule a particular group, it'd be a good idea to get an idea what they want to talk about and reach out to teams we think are likely to be wanted.
@nikomatsakis FWIW, Paul is a friend of mine, and would probably be up for coming to a meeting to speak and have a detailed conversation.
Also, I think he'd be happy to spend a while debating memory models with the lang team, too. ;)
That sounds like it would be interesting
