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.

b-b-b-b-b-b-b-bu muh WHITE VICTIMHOOD!!11!!11!!
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.
