@llogiq Sure, it is still very early for any serious conclusions to be drawn. I was thinking that maybe Mozilla or some other heavyweight projects (piston, glium) had some figures to share.
@BurntSushi I’m not really sure, maybe something like reduced number of reported bugs in a given period of time? If rust’s syntax mechanisms prevent faulty programs from even compiling that would otherwise become runtime bugs, I would expect rust projects to have less PRs than their counterparts. Quoting OpenBSD:
Only two remote holes in the default install, in a heck of a long time!
(it would say how long of a time in the early days, I believe).
For sure, quality metrics depend on too many factors to be easily produced. Still, having some empirical numbers would help in making informed rather than heart decisions.
