Rust Core Team + Mozilla To Create A Rust Foundation

Rust's core team and Mozilla are announcing plans to create a Rust foundation with the hopes of establishing this legal entity by year's end. The trademarks and related assets of Rust, Cargo, and Crates.io will belong to this foundation. Work is well underway on establishing this foundation with originally coming to the idea of possibly creating an independent Rust foundation last year, now pushed along by the recent Mozilla layoffs and the global pandemic. This should allow the Rust community more safety rather than being reliant upon a sole organization (Mozilla) and help foster growth and open up new possibilities.

Lay(off)ing the foundation for Rust's future

    Because a foundation just isn't a foundation without a good Code of Conduct.

    The Code will force anyone having anything to do with the foundation to be welcoming, inclusive, and supportive of multiple coding styles and languages. This way it won't end up being just a bunch of white males working on Rust.

    In the further interests of safety and being forced to take the CoC - mandatory gender reassignment surgery for all cis males working on Rust code.

    First they need to fix the White Supremacist Rust compiler so it no longer generates racist, eurocentric code. [westernjournal.com]

        Interesting site. They seem to cover foreign media outlets too. And their style seems rather neutral. I wonder who is funding them.

      b-b-b-b-b-b-b-bu muh house!!! When you're an American white male that lives in a house that's slowly sinking into a radiologically-hazardous toxic waste dump, & no government bureaucracy gives-a-shit because of reverse-racism, whaddya gonna do? And, under the layers of that toxic waste, is a hollow subterranean 'dome'. A decent explosive device planted in just the right location would most likely cause that dome to collapse & sink the entire neigborhood I reside in. Whatever it takes.

    They already have one of those, which is why I'll use the language but refuse to contribute any of my code changes back to it or its libraries.

        What's this "we" stuff? I very much doubt you've ever actually contributed code to a project, much less maintained one.

      Rrrright. Because otherwise, without CoC, Perl if choke full of TMB's back contributions (large grin)

        Some modules are, yes. I don't care to have nightmares though, so I never open the source files for Perl itself. Some Rust libraries have contributions from me as well, right up until they added a CoC.
