Rust Compiler January 2022 Steering Cycle

Jan. 18, 2022 · Felix Klock on behalf of The Compiler Team

On Friday, January 14th, the Rust Compiler team had a planning meeting for the January steering cycle.

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, 28 January, we will be having a meeting to discuss the backlog of P-high issues (there are currently 86 such issues). pnkfelix will prepare a document to drive the meeting, with a categorization of the issues, especially in terms of how they relate to specific subteams.

On Friday, 4 February, we will be having a meeting to discuss any beta regressions or backports that are pending for the Rust 1.59 release (due out 24 February, 2022). (We did not file a meeting proposal for this meeting, but you can see a similar meeting proposal that was used to drive an analogous meeting for the 1.48 release here.)

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