Why does rustc hang indefinitely on Raspbian Stretch?


So let’s hope it is some already fixed bug and eventually stable Rust will be usable on Raspbian without specific efforts.


As of 13th Jan I seem to be able to ‘rustup update stable’ on Raspbian stretch so maybe this has now been fixed. (rust used to work on the RPi just fine so this seems like an issue introduced in 1.31 don’t know how it slipped through testing!)
