FYI, the more typical channel for reporting such a typo would be by opening an issue on GitHub (this one could classify as “bug report” or “diagnostics issue”).

There is absolutely no problem with reporting the issue here, especially as a new user! Every form of contribution is good, and no matter where you're reporting an issue, it's infinitely better than not reporting the issue at all!

I was just letting you know for the future, in case you come across any other issues with the rust compiler, that the more common/proper approach is with a GitHub issue.

off-topic This is something that I love in this community. People answer to the best possible version of badly formulated questions, and even when the wrong medium is used they say it but still answer the question. You really feel welcomed and gently guided as a newcommer.
