Rust 2018: Rust should be an excellent open source citizen
Here's my late [#rust2018][rust2018] post. I contribute to a lot of projects in a lot of different languages. I think it's really important not to think about Rust in isolation, but in the context of the greater open source world. Here area few specific ways I think about this:
- ease of contributing to projects in rust
- interoperability with other languages (both directions)
- ripgrep should be in debian
- don't fracture the ecosystem
The rest of this post is going through these in turn.
