Lead: withoutboats

Getting started

The best way to start is to read this document, then join the chat and say hello! We’ll help you from there.


rustup is the primary Rust toolchain installer and manager; it’s how most users acquire and upgrade Rust and related tools. One of its major goals was to support easy cross-compilation. You can read more about its vision in the blog post that announced it.


By the end of the impl period, we should:
  • Position rustup for sustained maintenance by writing internal documentation, onboarding contributors, and paying down technical debt.
  • Have an improved security story (more details coming soon).

Open work items

At the moment, the best place to look for work items is the issue tracker. More work on triage and coordination is coming soon.
