We've scheduled our language team design meetings for April. We have plans for three meetings:
try blocks, Try traits, functions that try, oh my!
(Update: tentatively moved to May 4.)
Clear the path to stabilizing
try blocks and the
Try trait, and identify
some next steps for function-level try.
- Discuss revisions to the
Trytrait required for stabilization.
- Discuss syntax for early exit from a
trywith an error (
- If we have time, talk some about possibilities for function-level
April 20 -- Edition planning
Plan the 2021 edition, with a checklist of language features we will need to land in 2020 if we want to ship them in Rust 2021. We hope to emerge from this meeting with a checklist to guide our efforts, which we can adapt through the process.
April 27 -- Type aliases and traits enforcement
type Foo<T: Trait> = ... doesn't enforce
- Discuss the situation with type aliases and decide what actions we may want to take.
- Or, if we don't reach a decision, decide what measurements we might need to reach one.
- Ideally, decide about estebank's PR.
About the language team design meetings
The idea of the design meeting is that it's a time for us to have in-depth discussions on some particular topic. This might be a burning problem that we've discovered, an update on some existing design work, or a forward looking proposal.
The meetings are open for anyone to listen in and attend. They are typically also recorded and posted online, along with minutes, after the fact. They generally take place on Mondays at noon Eastern time, 9am Pacific time -- but for the precise scheduling you should check the lang team calendar. Scheduled meetings are subject to change and cancelation. In that case, the calendar events will be updated.
