Hi all,

As many of you know, we have realized that the work of the code size
reduction TG and code speed optimization SIG overlaps heavily. We have
therefore decided to merge the code speed optimization SIG into the
code size reduction TG to create a new code optimization group.

Meetings of the code speed optimization SIG are suspended, and there
will thus be no meeting next Monday, 1 February 2021.

The code optimization group will meet weekly on Tuesdays at 15:00
Pacific Time. Meetings will alternative between focusing on
optimization using ISA extensions and optimization using software tool
chains.

The new group will be chaired by Tariq Kurd of Huawei, who will lead
the meetings focusing on ISA extensions. The vice-chair/co-chair will
be Nidal Faour of Western Digital, who will lead the meetings focusing
on software tool chains. Wei Wu and I as outgoing chair/co-chair of
the code speed optimization SIG will become active participants in the
new optimization group, providing support to Tariq and Nidal.

The next meeting of this group on Tuesday 2 February, led by Nidal,
will be setting priorities for work on software tool chain
optimization. This discussion will be informed by the priority list
created in the code speed optimization SIG:

https://github.com/riscv/riscv-code-speed-optimization/blob/main/projects/candidate-projects.adoc

This group has a broad remit. Priority will be given to initiatives
which members of the group are willing to step forward and lead.

We look forward to seeing you all at future meetings of the combined
group.

Best wishes,


Jeremy Bennett, Outgoing chair, code speed optimization SIG
Wei Wu, Outgoing co-chair, code speed optimization SIG
