<p>This SIG provides a forum for discussing compilation and program analysis issues. Unlike most SIGs, it does not have a specific mandate or deliverable. There are several independent projects to develop compilers, type checkers, and related tools. The CPython and JPython distributions also contain compilers, of course; future versions of these compilers will also be discussed on this sig.
<p>There will likely be some overlap between the types-sig and the compiler-sig: The compiler will be responsible for implementing the type checker.
<p>This SIG grew out of a Developers' Day session at the 8th International Python Conference. Ka-Ping Yee took <A href="/files/sigs/dev-day-notes.txt">notes on the session.</A>
