From my project to port Haskell’s C parser and Corrode to Rust, I have this [medium] sized task available: https://github.com/tcr/corrode-but-in-rust/issues/65

I’m happy to mentor people through this task. The translation project is entirely in Rust (no Haskell knowledge necessary).

Perceptia is dynamic window manager with support for Wayland. It is young so I guess it is the most exiting time to become a contributor. Here are couple of example issues suitable for new-commers (many more interesting ones wait on github):




Offscreen mode with VNC or Spice would be nice feature to have. Is someone working in support for these protocols in Rust?

I filed a lot of issues in lyon’s repository, a lot of which are labelled “help wanted” and most of them are easy. I’ll be happy to mentor them.

Right now, bindgen generates unstable Rust code by default. That’s the wrong choice for a default, it should generate stable Rust code by default.

Who wants to fix this easy, good-first-bug?

Another default that should change is the way we translate C/C++ enums to Rust:

Right now, bindgen computes some properties of the C/C++ items it is generating bindings for in an ad-hoc way. Example properties we’re computing include whether a struct can derive Debug or if it has a vtable. The ad-hoc approach has proven to be error prone (and I suspect inefficient as well). We now have infrastructure to do these analyses in a more principled way and we’re looking for some help porting them :slight_smile:

Meta issue (has context + discussion): https://github.com/servo/rust-bindgen/issues/536

Issues for porting each computation:

Cheers :smiley_cat:
