Needs your help!
Anything that is not checked off still needs your help! There is no need to sign up or ask for permission - follow any of these links and leave your thoughts:
[y] = guideline is adhered to, no work needed.
[n] = guideline may need work, see comments nearby
[/] = guideline not applicable to this crate
This document is collaboratively editable. Pick a few of the guidelines, compare the
$CRATE crate against them, and fill in the checklist with
[y] if the crate conforms to the guideline,
[n] if the crate does not conform, and
[/] if the guideline does not apply to this crate. Each guideline is explained in $
- [n] Crate name is a palindrome (C-PALINDROME)
- rand backwards is dnar which is not the same as rand
Cookbook example ideas
Come up with ideas for nice introductory examples of using
$CRATE, possibly in combination with other crates, that would be good to show in the Rust Cookbook. Please leave a comment in that issue with your ideas! You don't necessarily have to write the example code yourself but PRs are always welcome.
API guideline updates
What lessons can we learn from
rand that will be broadly applicable to other crates? Please leave a comment in that issue with your ideas!
(List concerns that would be valuable to discuss in the libs team meeting)
(List potential issues to file after the review)
