Rust SIG is happy to provide tools written in Rust

Hash: SHA256

Hello everybody,

on behalf of Rust SIG[0] I'm happy to announce that recently we
migrated our package builds to COPR repository[1] and would like to ask
you which tool(s) you would like to see there (obviously, those should
be written in Rust).

So far we have:
- - ripgrep[2]
- - rustfilt[3]
- - rustfmt[4]

What about rustup? I feel it's quite important for anyone working in Rust.

I think rustup is great for managing rustc versions, and I do use it
myself, but I don't think it's a good fit for system packaging. It
wants to be interposed in your PATH with shims for rustc/cargo/etc., and
it also downloads updated toolchains itself. This is not in the spirit
of RPM-managed software.

For my own use, I first run "rustup toolchain link system /usr" and then
"rustup default system", so I'm primarily using the versions that I'm
responsible for packaging. :)

I'd like to help writing the spec file. I'd need some guidance though. Care to help me out? If so, shoot me a direct mail.
