Topic: URL Delimiting

An incredibly small nit, but if you're including a URL in a paragraph, you shouldn't use parentheses to delimit a URL. As technically they are valid URI characters so some parsers add the ) to the URL at the end of the link which causes the link to 404. The URI Generic Syntax RFC recommends using whitespace, double quotes "https://rust-lang.org", or angle brackets <https://rust-lang.org>.

I would suggest angle brackets, for consistency with convention elsewhere, such as in markdown.
