How Rust is built by its community

Roadmap and RFC process

Each major decision in Rust starts as a Request for Comments (RFC). Everyone is invited to discuss the proposal, to work toward a shared understanding of the tradeoffs. Though sometimes arduous, this community deliberation is Rust’s secret sauce for quality.

The RFC process is also used to establish a yearly roadmap laying out our aspirations for that year. This shared vision is essential for keeping the development process focused.
