Dear all,

Just a reminder that compiler hacking is on this evening at Pembroke in room N7 
from 1830 onwards.  The current attendee list and food choices are here: 

If you feel you are unable to make it tonight, or wish to attend and haven't 
yet signed up, then both of these are ok!  We will ensure that uneaten fresh 
food is donated to a local charity, and provide some additional wine for those 
who feel the need for some liquid sustenance :)

A few topics to hack on this evening are:

- "Junior jobs" in Mantis for the core OCaml compiler; 
https://caml.inria.fr/mantis/view_all_bug_page.php -- suitable for beginners.

- Using MirageOS 3 from the development tree and reporting bugs 
https://github.com/mirage/mirage-dev. The MirageOS3 release is in full swing, 
and we would like to port libraries to topkg and get them up on 

- Configuring the Merlin editor and getting Fred and Gemma more feedback on the 
roadmap for the next release due in a few months: 

- Trying out the recent release of OCaml 4.04 (e.g. flambda) and the Spacetime 

- And anything else that captures your interest. A number of us are newcomers 
to these evenings, so please do feel free to mingle and ask questions of more 
regular attendees!
