rust-url is fairly popular, but the set of its maintainers is pretty much me. Unfortunately I haven’t given it all the time it needs lately. The project is not in a bad shape overall, but there is a growing number of pull requests that need attention, especially with the recent libs blitz.
If you care about rust-url and are able and willing to spend time on it, please help triaging issues and reviewing pull requests. Ideally I’d love to be able to pass day-to-day maintenance of the project to a new set of co-maintainers, but any form or amount of help is appreciated.
Thanks! Start from https://github.com/servo/rust-url/pulls, pick one, try Reviewable if you’d like (there a purple button on the first message of every PR) or use GitHub if you prefer, review a diff, add comments if you find bugs, other issues, or have questions; add a “looks good to me” comment if you don’t.
Is there a list of these? I may not be able to actually commit to maintaining a crate, but perhaps this info would be good to post somewhere and I definitely want to help where I can. I didn’t see anything specific in the “Libz Blitz” post, which is why I ask.
No, there is not a list, but most of rust-lang-nursery gets relatively few eyes. For example, rustup went 4 months without a release this year. I want to get it back on a roadmap that people can contribute to and help maintain. This is not the thread for that discussion though. Sorry for hijacking it to talk about non-url crates.
What I want to do is to improve the conformance of these algorithms, as well as the performance and maintainability, as they need regular updates. Also, a top goal is to assure crate users that they can rely on the unicode version of the crates match.
If you are interested, @cbreeden, I will ping you when I have more updates on those.
