<Gooberpatrol_66>what's the difference between gnu assembly and "retro gnu" besides having a CoC?
<rekado>Gooberpatrol_66: see the social contract
<rekado>and governance
<Gooberpatrol_66>the social contract doesn't seem to me to be different from what gnu already does
<rekado>GNU does not have a social contract
<Gooberpatrol_66>what does that mean?
<Gooberpatrol_66>it doesn't have a webpage titled "social contract"?
<rekado>no, that’s not what it means
<Gooberpatrol_66>like, a "social contract" as typically used is an abstract concept. all sorts of organizations and institutions have them implicitly.
<Gooberpatrol_66>i don't think it becomes a social contract by virtue of being written down
<Gooberpatrol_66>though i'm not arguing against the existence of a handy aggregation of things you can find elsewhere on gnu's websites
<Gooberpatrol_66>unless this is not a mere text document and it has some legally or organizationally binding power i'm unaware of
<rekado>all people listed on that site ‘signed’ the social contract
<rekado>it’s not a handy aggregation of thing you can find eleswhere
<Gooberpatrol_66>i feel like i've read all those things a dozen times before
<PurpleSym>I’m trying to build ghc locally for i686. Might take a while.
<rekado>FYI: rust 1.67.1 (from the rebased rust-team branch) has now reached the test phase
