Meetings

The Tuesday meeting was all about split stacks and FFI. It’s complex and above my ability to summarize, but from what I can tell no real consensus was made. But, it’s the best enumeration of all the various issues surrounding split stacks that I’ve seen.

Discussion + Blog posts

From now on I’m going to just link to the reddit thread if there is one, as it often has additional comments or insights.
