I’m a new user to rust and I have to admit. I am very confused on where I should direct some questions/discussions. Currently I have know of 5 communication avenues:
- The Mailing list
- This Discourse forum
- Github Issues (if it’s bug-related)
As a new user, I honestly dislike IRC unless it’s an in-depth or nuanced discussion and it needs a higher bandwidth than email or a forum.
I came across this on the mailing list
The mailing list is mostly dead BTW. Consider bringing this up on discuss.rust-lang.org instead.
And now I’m thoroughly confused.
As a concrete example, I just posted http://discuss.rust-lang.org/t/is-the-proper-way-to-specify-statically-compiled-ffi-libraries/1190 and I had to do some reading before posting to see if I was violating the community rules. Discourse told me to read http://discuss.rust-lang.org/t/about-this-forum-please-read/6 before posting and that seems pretty strict, yet there are other active discussions going on. I’ve followed the mailing list for a while, and that has been pretty helpful.
Is there any guidance on what sorts of discussions should be on what mediums? Is there also a way that can be clarified for other new users?
