This Week in Rust editors' thread


@nasa42 I’ve pushed FCPs and events to my wip. I’ll wait for you on the blog links and the qotw, then we’ll publish.


@brson already made a PR. :slight_smile:


Today’s edition is out!


Would job offers for rust programmers be something that could go into TWIR? Specifically student/assistant researcher jobs.


I think it’s a great idea. Maybe we can also start a new thread here “Job
Board” and TWiR can pick posts from there?


I started a draft for Monday and added upcoming events. Not sure how much else I’ll get done today.


Sorry guys, it’s been a very busy Monday. I’ll get TWiR next issue PR done
first thing tomorrow morning.


Here’s my wip for today. So far I’ve got PR’s done.


OK, I’m going to finish off what is now yesterday’s edition today.


@nasa42 OK, I’m starting on the blog posts now, and will get this wrapped up soon.


Oh, I see you’ve got a PR up! I’ll merge ours and publish. Sorry for all the posts.


@brson I thought you get the PR notifications. I’ll tag you next time. :slight_smile:


Should mention the German forum in next edition.


This week’s edition is out:

@nasa42 this week I didn’t do any collection of RFCs and PRs myself and instead just included the entire subteam report to cover those subjects. If the teams continue producing useful information this may make TWiR easier to maintain.


Got an email:

week’s distribution :slight_smile:

The rustbyexample lifetime section rewrite just merged. It has needed updating for a long time.

I’m not sure where the next twir draft is so I didn’t modify anything.


You can always leave a note here or on
and I’ll add them to next issue. :slight_smile:


in issue 92 the link to @huon’s SIMD work in the compiler team report is incorrect (it was also incorrect in the original report in whichever forum post it was posted in).


Three things landed with Rust By Example last night:

  1. RBE now tracks stable Rust:
  2. I updated the configuration to use Travis’s new, faster, container-based infrastructure
  3. We used to only test against nightly, but with some refactoring, we test against all three now:


Today’s edition is out. Thanks to @nasa42 again.
