I’d very much like to get these two pull requests reviewed in time for the v2.20 release:
They reduce compile time from
35s24s to 7s for a new model.
There’s a hard deadline for testing to get through Jenkins before some time 18 July (next Thursday, 9 days from now), which means getting all change requests done and into Jenkins at least a day before that.
There’s also the issue of whether to ignore the Mac pro performance regression on
arK.stan—I don’t see it with clang++ or g++ 6 on my Macbook. @seantalts told me me he’s seen similar regressions before around pointers versus references and ignored them because they didn’t reproduce on any other hardware.
