WG checkins

  • @_WG-polymorphization by @davidtwco (previous checkin):

    There’s no update from wg-polymorphization again this cycle, we think it’ll benefit from the trait system refactor work being spearheaded by lcnr.

  • @_WG-rls2.0 by @Lukas Wirth (previous checkin):

    GAT support in r-a landed just a few days before stabilization of the feature. Some improvements were done for making the linkedProjects config of r-a work better for the rust-lang/rust repo. An RFC#3344 has been written that would allow us to get rid of the RUSTC_WRAPPER hack in rust-analyzer. Finally we looked a bit more into whether turning library into a separate workspace would be feasible such that r-a can resolve third party crates used by std as that is still blocking a type inference PR from landing in r-a, unfortunately that seems to introduce too much churn zulip thread.

Performance logs

triage logs for 2022-11-14

A light week for triage. The biggest of the three regressions has a (hopeful) fix up already. The second biggest is a regression we are accepting for sake of correctness of incremental-compilation. The third regression is small and may well be removed as the type system internals are improved. max-rss seems stable.

Triage done by @pnkfelix. Revision range: 57d3c58e..96ddd32c

  • Already triaged (by two different people).
  • Also, according to comment thread, this change is slated to be removed once binders support implied bounds, so even if there is a minor regression attached to this PR, the PR should nonetheless go away eventually.
