Path not updated when installing Rust

Following the instructions from the getting started page of the Rust lang website, I found that my PATH wasn't updated after installation.

I use fish and I'm on Fedora 34. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to submit a feature request to make updating the PATH work, and where should I even submit such an issue.

I think PATH is updated if you use sh-compatible shell. If you use fish or any other non-standard shell, then you are on your own.

Yeah I figured. That's why I wanted to know if I could post a feature request somewhere. It'd be a nicer user experience for newbies, and fish is pretty well known and widespread I'd think.

See here. If comments from 2019 still apply, they just need someone familiar with fish convention to file a PR, perhaps with the help of some mentoring.
