I just published my first crate "reader_for_microxml".
I prepared it thorughly:
- I have a repository on Github with a good readme.md
- I copied this readme.md into lib.rs for the documentation.
- I used "include" in cargo.toml to publish only meaningfull files.
- Checked with --dry-run and then finally published.
All looks fine. There are this different "entities" for my future users:
- crates.io (to use in cargo.toml and discover crates)
- doc.rs the documentation compiled from code in crates.io
- github.com - the repository for development
I miss a place/forum where my users could discuss about the crate. With me and with other users.
The rust community has <users.rust-lang.org>. I can start a Topic, but one single crate needs more than one single Topic I think.
Then there is the subreddit <www.reddit.com/r/rust>.
Same there. I can crate a Post or a reply.
And then there is the tab "Issue" on Github. But that also does not look like a discussion. It is more a bug tracker.
Where could every crate have a public official discussion exclusive about it ?
