@shepmaster It would be nice if a number of these low-level crates (like @mkrasnenkov is talking about) could be excluded from the count. They might still be in the list because of popularity, but when the system sees
winapi, it would know to grab another crate, yielding 101 most popular instead of 100 most popular, as an example. There are several of these low-level crates that should be treated similarly... and by-popular-demand crates like Rayon should be manually added to the list.
We are avoiding hand-selecting any crates to reduce any kinds of favoritism.
as long as the community is responsible for the crate selection already (by downloading crates), I don't see how hand-selecting some crates based on user demand would be any different.
This is all just my opinion, of course.
