swift-evolution is great, but takes a lot of time for the Swift Core Team - or even too much.
To me, it seems like a temporary halt to
swift-evolution would be very welcome. This gives the Swift Core Team more time and concentration to solve issues that they would’ve liked to address a long time ago: ABI stability (!), fixing crashes, improving error messaging, improving compile times, paying off technical debt…
swift-evolution doesn’t magically solve all these “problems”, but I think it can give more room and focus on deferred work.
Maybe there will even be time to look into this Discourse thing, which would improve the
swift-evolution process in the future…
