This Week In Servo 3

2014-09-17 What's up with Servo for the week of 9-16 September, 2014

In the last week, we landed 63 PRs. Servo now uses Cargo and mach!

Cargo unshackles us from makefiles and submodules (mostly), and keeps us running alongside the rest of the Rust community. Additionally, mach makes the build system easy to extend.

Stuff discussed in the meeting:

  • Bugs related to testing on the static suite
  • Clark’s bloom filter work and performance improvements as a result of it
  • Tables: We’re probably going to help work on table spec
  • COW DOM issues and design
  • Rust inheritance: It’s time to look at the full set of options proposed as RFCs, taking into consideration what are the biggest pain points of simulating inheritance in Servo today.
