Currently README says “Rust currently needs between 600MiB and 1.5GiB of RAM to build”, but it seems outdated.
I clearly remembered building Rust on 2 GB host, so I recently purchased Scaleway 1-S VPS which provides 2 GB memory. HEAD build swapped and eventually got killed.
So 1. what is the current build memory requirement? 2. Is it desirable to keep this under 2 GB? (I think it is.)
