Hello,
I saw that you might need some extra hands and I would like to try to help. My name is Huw and I have been following Rust for about a year or so. I work as a software development manager by day but can offer you some of my free time. I am not sure what I could do to help but you can review the Rust code I have written to give yourself an idea of what might be appropriate. I wrote a wrapper around the Oracle OCI libary https://github.com/huwwynnjones/oci_rs. I have not worked on any other part of the Rust project. Let me know if/what you need and if there is any primer documentation that would be worth me reading first.
Thanks
Huw

:wave: Hi @Huw Wynn-Jones =)

We're actually doing pretty good right now, we don't have that many tasks at present, but I'll definitely ping you if something comes up (and/or try to review some of the issues and maybe find a lower priority one that we had shelved)

If you are more generally interested in compiler development there are plenty of other tasks that need doing :slight_smile:

Yes, I would be. If you can tell me where I should go to see the tasks then I take a look and start to find somewhere to help. Thanks

I worked it out now and found the rustc book and the issues list, I will go from there.
