Lang Team Meetings

Recording is now live on YouTube!


OK we went into a bit of a hiatus here. However, the next working group sync meeting is tomorrow, April 17, 2019 (calendar event). The meeting will (as always) begin with some light triage.

The topic of the meeting will be discussion around async-await and primarily this issue:


I may have spoken too soon. Take this with a grain of salt: We didn’t do the best job of planning out our agenda last week. I’ll maybe update later.

Video posted here and dropbox paper document available here – we did wind up covering unused arguments after all! (As well as very briefly touching on the policy around fcp etc.)


Next meeting is today. The topics up for discussion are:

  • Async-await syntax resolution plan – we have a general plan for how to resolve the question of async-syntax, but we’ve not communicated it (surprise!). We are going to touch base on the plan and who will communicate what and where.
  • Meta working group kickoff proposal – plan to kick off a group to discuss how working groups should function.

Sorry for not posting meetings in a while! Life got crazy. Also, in the upcoming couple of weeks I will be on vacation. Due to the specifics of how Zoom recording works, we may not be able to record those meetings either.

  • Main topics:
    • nounwind attribute logic

  • Dropbox paper
  • Focus area for this meeting was the Grammar Working Group (comes at the end), with @qmx giving a report (:pray). We talked about their goals, history, and what we can do to better integrate the Grammar WG into the team as a whole.
  • Other notable discussions:
    • unwind, #63909
    • the Ref type and noalias, #63787


  • Video recording
  • Minutes -- as of now, we are moving the minutes from dropbox paper docs to this gitub repository -- and yeah it's kind of a mess, that's dropbox paper export for ya'
  • Focus area was RFC 2753, the "C panic" ABI specifier

NB. I think from next week I'll start posting these to the Inside Rust blog instead.

Would it make sense to announce the Inside Rust Blog in an internals post? I suspect this is the audience that would care the most.
