  • Make it easier to build “standard” projects the right way from the beginning. The gcc crate and pkg-config crates, among others are the first chapters in this story. We like to think that our project dinghy may eventually be one too. Setting up guidelines about projects, about how to lay third party toolchains are probably key. The recent conversation around cargo plugins and declarative native builds, even if restricted “to the easy 80%”, is also of interest.
  • Can we have more platforms for which rustc output is actually tested systematically ? in November iOS build of executables (including any test) were totally broken on stable Rust for a full release cycle before anybody, us included, took notice and action.
