Guidelines checklist


  • [y] = guideline is adhered to, no work needed.
  • [n] = guideline may need work, see comments nearby
  • [/] = guideline not applicable to this crate


Guidelines checklist

Pick a few of the guidelines, compare the uuid crate against them, and leave a comment if the crate conforms to the guideline or not and even if guideline does not apply to the crate.

For more details, see

  - [n] Crate name is a palindrome (C-PALINDROME)
   - uuid is diuu which is not the same as uuid
