Hey all. I started converting the k/k repo to use Go workspaces
(better support fort multiple modules in a repo). It's mostly working
as a PoC, _BUT_ there's a long tail of things to do to make it
mergeable. I'm finding myself increasingly struggling to make time,
and I don't want to end up being the only person who knows how it
works.

Anyone want to help?

It's grungy work. It's not a cool new feature. It involves a lot of
archaeology and some of the oldest tech-debt in the project. But it's
also a chance to scrub some old, dirty pieces into a nicer state, to
delete horrible hacks, and to enjoy the rewards of a job well done.

If you're interested, let me know. I'd be happy to show you what I
have done so far, and explain the approach and what needs to be done
yet (the list is still growing).

I think you'll generally find the code organization subproject interested in this sort of work, I lurk there and I know I am :-)

(dropping a mention in the subproject slack)

Do you have a PR to take a look?

You just can't help yourself, signing up for the worst jobs :)

It's 72 commits and a LOT more to do. Some of the commits are clean,
and some are a disaster for now. Basically gengo needs to be burned
down.

If anyone looks at that and still wants to help, I can set up a Zoom
call to walk-thru what I have done and what I think needs to be done
yet. :)

I could do a Zoom tomorrow at 14:00 California time, which I know is
late for Europe, or Friday early (which is still Friday afternoon for
EU). Next week is a disaster in the mornings.

Anyone game?

Highly interested. I had one question though. Since I'm pretty new to open source, will this task have a steep learning curve? I've time in my hands but I'm not sure about whether I'll be able to be effective in this endeavour.

Wow! So much interest, I don't know how to harness it.

When: Fri Jun 3, 2022 9am – 10:15am Pacific Time - Los Angeles
Where: meet.google.com/fxs-wgon-vor

That's UTC-7. I'll record it.
