Hi Swift Community,
The review of SE-0244: Opaque Result Types has reopened and runs through April 17, 2019.
The previous review was returned for revision, with the goal of setting the proposal in a wider context of future possible directions for the generics system. Since then, @Joe_Groff has written a post on the discussion forum, Improving the UI of Generics.
He has updated the proposal to reference that document. If you participated in the previous review, you may find this diff helpful.
Reviews are an important part of the Swift evolution process. All review feedback should be either on this forum thread or, if you would like to keep your feedback private, directly to me as the review manager via email or direct message on the forums. If you send me email, please put "SE-0244" somewhere in the subject line.
What goes into a review of a proposal?
The goal of the review process is to improve the proposal under review through constructive criticism and, eventually, determine the direction of Swift.
When reviewing a proposal, here are some questions to consider:
What is your evaluation of the proposal?
Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
Thank you for contributing to Swift!
