introduce "compiler-team contributors" #2689
Introduce an intermediate level of member for the compiler team, the compiler team contributor.
This proposal is part of a larger effort to introduce more structure into the compiler team's makeup. This structure should make it easier to become a part of the compiler team, by laying out a clear path to membership and by offering more official roles.
This RFC was collaboratively drafted on the compiler-team repository.
To do items
cc @rust-lang/compiler -- this RFC tries to formalize what r+ means and also a bunch of our other implicit procedure. For those of you who didn't look at it already, please give it a read!
Note -- I am inclined to move quickly towards (at minimum) formalizing this team in the rust-lang/team repository and adding our first set of nominees (which I previously been discussed on our mailing list). I think we could do this even if we want to discuss some of the particulars that I wrote here for longer, though I suspect we may also be able to move quickly to FCP.
Ah, shoot, I forgot something that I meant to do (so I've added it to a "to do" list in the top issue). I meant to add a mention of the GH team structure. I imagine that we will want to have
Bikeshedding on names welcome.
Team member @nikomatsakis has proposed to merge this. The next step is review by the rest of the tagged team members:
No concerns currently listed.
Once a majority of reviewers approve (and at most 2 approvals are outstanding), this will enter its final comment period. If you spot a major issue that hasn't been raised at any point in this process, please speak up!
See this document for info about what commands tagged team members can give me.
