It is my great pleasure to announce that @withoutboats will be joining the Language Design subteam. @withoutboats has been very involved in many language design discussions across the RFC as well as
internals.rust-lang.org, and has demonstrated both a strong understanding of how language features interact as well as an ability to identify key constraints and drive conversations towards consensus. @withoutboats has also authored a number of thoughtful and well-reasoned RFCs, such as RFC 1148 – which discussed mutually exclusive traits – and RFC 1598 – which extends associated types with the ability to be generic over types and lifetimes. (Due to the complex nature of these RFC, neither has yet been accepted, but the approach described in both is generally seen as the right one and their designs are sure to influence any RFC that winds up being accepted.) The lang team has long valued their insights, and is looking forward to working together more closely.
