Hello everyone! We have 22 days until 1.0! Let’s round that off to a nice 20.
As you all know, the Manual has always been a bit… wrong. It’s the hardest piece of documentation to keep up-to-date, and while the language was changing so quickly… yeah.
We have this issue on the 1.0 milestone about double checking the Reference:
We’ve decided that the standard for the reference at present is “Nothing should be incorrect, but it doesn’t need to be complete.” I’ve gone over the whole thing myself, and I think it has that standard today, but I’m just one person, and reading something that long, I’m bound to make some mistakes. So I’m asking for your help.
I’ve added a checklist to that issue. There are 150 (!) sections in the Reference. With 20 days to go, we need to audit seven and a half sections a day to get this done.
Many of these sections are small, so don’t despair! If you’re new to Rust, this is also a great way to get involved: pick a section, try out what it says, see if it’s true.
If you decide to pitch in, please pick a section, and if it’s good, mention so in the comments on that issue. If it’s not, please send a PR, and also mention that you’ve sent it in the issue.
here’s a quick link: http://doc.rust-lang.org/reference.html
Don’t forget, you can edit it on github and send a PR without even forking! Click the little pencil button on https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/blob/master/src/doc/reference.md
Thanks so much!
