  • Sigstore – A new standard for signing, verifying and protecting software | 2021-08-09
    This is pretty cool and i think one of the good application areas of distributed ledger technology.

    Signing is still a hard problem, even for established projects like Rust. Right now, rustup does not verify signatures in any way or form. The security is solely thanks to https and the S3 bucket not being compromised.

    In addition to the release notes, rustup also has experimental support for rustls now instead of using the builtin tls library. You can try it out by setting the RUSTUP_USE_RUSTLS env var.

  • How to write the `channel` for `rust-toolchain.toml`? | 2021-03-30
    PR #2653 which introduced the rust-toolchain.toml file is very recent and will only land in rustup version 1.24 from what I can tell. You can check what version you have using rustup --version but from what I can tell the latest publicly available stable version is 1.23. This seems to be a case where the docs have been updated faster than the change actually landed.
  • Looking for an open-source project to join part-time | 2021-03-14
    While I'm somewhat biassed, I'd say that the rustup project ( acts, not only as a gateway into using Rust, but also as a gateway into developing on Rust projects. If you look at you'll find a lot of issues where the devs (including me) are prepared to help you get on with making a useful contribution to the ecosystem.

  • Does rustup check integrity of downloaded updates? | 2021-02-11
    it does | 2021-02-11
    See: | 2021-02-11
    Yes and no. If you look at the issue, it only issues you a warning. See: You should audit the rustup code to see what it does and doesn't check.
  • Nightly - sysinfo/FreeBSD | 2021-01-14
    It's a run-time error from effective-limits - looks like it's just waiting on a new version being published. It used to be cfg'd out, but this was removed for CI reasons.
