Rust is an expansive system of projects, the most prominent of which are maintained by The Rust Project Developers in the rust-lang organization on GitHub. Newcomers may be interested in the project’s CONTRIBUTING.md file, which explains the mechanics of contributing to rust-lang/rust.
There are many ways to contribute to the success of Rust. This guide focuses on a few avenues for the new contributor:
- Finding, triaging and fixing issues. The basic work of maintaining a large and active project like Rust.
- Documentation. Not just official documentation, but also for crates, blog posts, and other unofficial sources.
- Community building. Helping your fellow Rustacean, and expanding the reach of Rust.
- Tooling, IDEs and infrastructure. The important pieces that make using a language practical and painless.
- Libraries. Rust’s suitability for any particular task is mostly dependent on availability of quality libraries.
- Language, compiler and the standard library. Language design, feature implementation, performance improvement.
- Internationalization. Help spread the Rust love by translating our site to every language.
We pride ourselves on maintaining civilized discourse, and to that end contributors are expected to follow our Code of Conduct. If you have questions about this please inquire with the community team.
