So, I’m sorry to say it but @tromey will be started a new job come next Thursday and likely won’t have time to help with Rust debugging anymore. We need to discuss how we are going to maintain the current Rust debuginfo support.
I had a few thoughts:
Would there be interest in @tromey doing a kind of “intro to debugging support” talk? I was thinking we could do a video call where @tromey walks through how debuginfo works, where rust-lldb lives, etc. We could record it, too, for others to watch. Would people be into that? It would probably want to be sometime next week. I know I would want to watch!
Write-ups and roadmaps. @tromey has been taking time to dump the “current state” of their thought process into issues and so forth.
Are there people interested in owning this topic? This is a big question. I’m not sure how best to support said people but I do think it’s something that sort of needs to happen.
Should we remove some features? For example, if we can’t support rust-lldb, should we just stop shipping it? That would be very sad, however.
