I’ve noticed that the
rust-src component has pretty much the same content as the
rustc-$version-src tarball for the compiler distribution, just wrapped in a rust-installer script to install to some
My question is, does it really need to contain everything? My impression is that this is mostly meant to aid general Rust development, for racer/rls/etc., so I’d think all you really need are the sources for the standard library - roughly just for the
*.rlib parts of rust-std. Maybe you could also justify a
rust-internals-src for the compiler’s additional
librustc_foo crates. But I really don’t see the need to have stuff like
src/test in here!
I’ve been asked to package rust-src in our Fedora RPMs, and I’d like to do this now that stuff like RLS is picking up steam, but I would like to see it a bit more curated if possible.
