Thanks for the great suggestions so quickly! I’ll also set aside some time to summarise everything once some more ideas are posted and there is general consensus.
Completely agree – documentation is fundamental as it is felt by most I feel. The limitations of build-tools are perhaps more felt by more advanced or complicated workflows.
This sound really interesting – from experience I think quite a few beginners are unfamiliar with the ability of having multiple repos. I certainly was until I started cross-compiling to RISC-V :)) I think a good example curated repo would help drive this home more, do you know if one exists beyond the cross-compiling ones which aren’t exactly what we’re looking for?
This sounds good. I do wonder if more documentation/tutorials/awareness of dune-release and opam-publish might also help. I, for one, am sitting on a few libraries I should really publish but the process can be a little intimidating, so I still agree a search would be great but ultimately it would be good for libraries to make it upstream.
Thanks for the kind words :))
Not in a position to start making GSoC proposals but they are definitely still a thing! For example two projects I think are great, still do them. Even outside of GSoC perhaps a curated list of OCaml Community approved projects/internships that would benefit the whole community would be good that different businesses/organisations/foundations could use when making their own internships would be useful? At least everyone would be united on that front.
