Happy to mentor!

Would it be possible to add this issue about heed on the next TWIR blog post, please? :slight_smile:

Unsoundness in the time crate which can cause an unexpected segfault. User who noticed the issue notes that it may be necessary to reimplement this function entirely in Rust, rather than relying on libc. Given that I'm by no means qualified to do this (as I rarely program in C, and never with OS-level APIs), it's probably best for someone else to take this on.

I'm not entirely sure this fits the Call for Participation, but I figured I'd throw this out there as some people have suggested I do so.

I am currently attempting to add support for the Windows OpenSSH ssh-agent to libssh2, the SSH library used by many Rust programs, including Cargo. My end goal is to support the Windows OpenSSH ssh-agent in Cargo. The main blocker right now to merging support is the maintainers' lack of knowledge and experience with Windows preventing them from comfortably reviewing the code.

I would ask anyone with experience programing on Windows in C to take a look at this PR, and leave a code review. I would deem this a easy to medium task.


Hi !

I'd like to call for contributions for scaphandre, a power consumption measurement agent to help find "energy blackholes" in tech projects and thus make IT more sustainable. :deciduous_tree:

The why of the project is better described here.


New contributors would be of great help. There are several improvements and tasks to be achieved that can be found in the issue section. Those estimated as easiest are highlighted.

The roadmap is also publicly available. To mention some features that we would like to implement in a near future:

  • Enabling sending power consumption data in monitoring toolchains like Warp10 or Riemann (It's already possible to collect the data from prometheus)

  • Enable tracking power consumption of processes in virtual machines running other hypervisors than Qemu/KVM (there's already a proof of concept for this one, that needs to be improved too :slight_smile: ).

  • Providing a way to estimate power consumptions of virtual machines hosted by cloud providers, when no access to hardware metrics is provided. (a source of inspiration for that particular feature may be cloud-jewels...)

And so on...

:construction_worker_woman: :construction_worker_man: There is a lot of interesting, challenging work to be done. Moreover, this is for a greater cause: to contribute to a more sustainable tech industry and thus help have a better future. Any contribution (not only code) would be celebrated and warmly welcomed. I precise that it is a great deal for us to initiate a community around that project that is kind and respectful to anyone and any effort. The code of conduct of the rust community matches a lot of our values and this project will be respectful of that spirit. Mutual respect and understanding are key values in this project. :dove:

I wish a nice and inspiring open source journey to all the wonderful rust community and I hope to see some of you come and say hi sometime :grinning:

(A Gitter room is available for further discussions.)


I am working on the community space for https://rC3.world and I am looking for someone that would like add a bit of art:

Got a refactoring issue that shouldn't be too hard in heck:

The js_int crate also has some easy issues to fix:

Hi, I'm trying to reboot development on the Rust rewrite of Magic Wormhole. There are a lot of low-hanging fruits right now and I'll provide support with implementing them. Issues are tagged accordingly: Issues · magic-wormhole/magic-wormhole.rs · GitHub

If there's something I can do to become more contributor-friendly, let me know :slight_smile:
