Hi all, I noticed that some of the work on the NetBSD port is taking place on the netbsd mailing lists and some seems to be taking place on the Rust community portals. So I thought I would try to link the discussions together to make sure people are on the same page (literally?)
Currently NetBSD has version 0.11 in wip/rust and when 1.8 stable is release, it will be added under lang/rust. However, this looks like it will be using some cobbled together version of cargo.
On the rust side of things, there is a nightly build of
cargo doesn’t have a nightly build yet. But it should be available soon since @alexcrichton is doing a lot of work in this area including merging more support in cargo;
So, my understanding of the current state of play is that once cargo has snapshot builds then one can build Rust using
./configure --enable-rustbuild. Does this mean much of jperkins’ work is unneeded? Do you think Rust 1.8 will be available on NetBSD?
NB: I see @alexcrichton is doing lots of work in this area, but I didn’t see any mention of NetBSD in the triage of subteam report threads.
