Rust Compiler July Steering Cycle

July 2, 2021 · Felix Klock on behalf of The Compiler Team

n Friday, July 2nd, the Rust Compiler team had a planning meeting for the July steering cycle, followed by a continuation of an ongoing discussion of the 1.52.0 fingerprint event.

Every fourth Friday, the Rust compiler team decides how it is going to use its scheduled steering and design meeting time over the next three Fridays.

On Friday, 9 July, we will be having a third follow-up meeting to continue the discussion of the incremental compilation fingerprint issue that led to the emergency 1.52.1 release. For reference, the first meeting on this subject was held on Friday, 25 June (and the second was today, July 2nd).

On Friday, 16 July, we will be having a meeting to discuss extensions to the review policy for Rust Compiler Pull Requests.

Each meeting will run from 2pm to 3pm GMT, and will take place on the T-compiler/meetings zulip stream.
