Should there be a Rust Evalgelism Strike Force Field Guide?


#1

One of the issues with “have you considered rewriting this in Rust?” is that it’s often an unsolicited remark by a drive by contributor. That’s about as welcome as a telemarketer calling at dinner time.

Wouldsible to start up a (mostly for fun) guide for people spreading Rust?

I’m not very fond of the whole RESF meme. I like that the Rust community has coopted it as a self deprecating joke, however labeling actual good faith rust evangelism with that meme will probably be counterproductive.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCsxYAxw3JQ is actually a pretty good guide of how to pitch rust at your company.

I agree with Manish here, don’t take the joke too far.

That being said, I think a serious guide would be a great thing to have. I have a scribble here for ages, but at my pace of writing, I’d be happy if someone assisted.
