This Week In Servo 2

In the last week, we landed 17 PRs. Next week should have more, as some of the work was being held back, pending the large conversion from autotools to Cargo.

There was no meeting on September 1, as that was the US Labor Day holiday.

###Notable additions

###New contributors

###Meeting

Stuff discussed in the meeting:

  • Cargo: The switch to Cargo will land shortly.
  • Script: It uses 1.2GB of RAM, and running concurrently with other large compilations can cause TravisCI to abort, as it exceeds the 3GB limit.
  • Android embedding strategy
  • Switching from busy-looping in our work-stealing to a back-off strategy and the resulting power savings
