Note that being maintained by
rust-lang does not necessarily mean they're the best crates or even the best maintained crates. Sometimes they are there simply for historical reasons (e.g. rustc used them before there was an alternative).
That said, the
regex crate is currently developed and maintained by burntsushi so no worries there.
