I wonder whether Go's lack of parametric
polymorphism might make it a
pretty tough sell. Given the potential benefit of introducing a
typed language, it might be interesting to
investigate and compare some
the different options.
Regarding Yuri's point about tools, what would it take to integrate Hack
into the current MediaWiki build processes? It *seems* like it wouldn't
a huge diversion, but I'm quite unfamiliar
with what's in place now.
we dabbled in Hack since the HHVM switch?
I'm not aware of any WMF/MediaWiki work being done in Hack yet.
Putting Hack into MediaWiki's core would be controversial but a stand
alone service/app could easily choose to use it I think.
Yeah, I'd -2 anything that required Hack in core.
However if an extension wants to experiment they probably
could. I was already thinking of trying some Hack in something
WMF-specific like a Wikimedia* extension.
