Friend of the tree
Peter Atashian (WindowsBunny, retep998)
In his own words, WindowsBunny is “a hopping encyclopedia of all the issues windows users might run into and how to solve them.” One of the heroes that make Rust work on Windows, he actively pushes the frontiers of what Rust can do on the platform. He is also notably the maintainer of the winapi family of crates, a comprehensive set of bindings to the Windows system APIs. You da bunny, WindowsBunny. Also, a friend of the tree.

We also discussed a number of thorny outstanding PRs.
Please continue to keep an eye on the stabilization dashboard for 1.6, joining the discussion for any APIs relevant to you.
The MIR transition has begun! Lately there have been a number of PRs
pushing on converting the
trans phase over the compiler over to use
MIR, which is very exciting. If you’re interesting in helping out,
please check out the
MIR Tracking Issue #27840,
which contains a lot of links for bite-sized bits of work, as well as
larger design questions that are yet unsettled.
