We've learned a lot from the go2go implementation as far as type checking, but we need to understand better how a compiled implementation of type parameters would be done.

We're not ready to do that in the main tree—among other things, there isn't even a final proposal yet—but it would be good to have somewhere public for the people doing the initial exploratory implementation to work.

This issue is to create a dev.typeparams branch in the Gerrit go repo, analogous to the other currently active branches:

  • dev.fuzz (exploratory fuzzing work),
  • dev.go2go (go2go translator work),
  • dev.link (linker work from last few cycles).
  • dev.types (exploratory new go/types package work),

The creation of this branch does not mean that the generics design draft is any farther along as far as being a proposal or accepted proposal. It just means we need a place to do the next round of implementation to learn more about it.
