I think #Rust as a "project" that involves people has done something wrong. The #RustConf "epic" has serious bugs. I think we are #developers enough to handle a project failure. We have hindsight, we know how to report a bug in the code without blaming anyone. We know how to foster a culture of knowledge sharing and respect. We do it every day.
And we also know when it is time to ask an outside contractor for help with a particular technology. #Governance has experts, other languages have experience, parties like the Pirate Party are technologically savvy enough to have some insight to share.
I hope people around Rust will soon find a way to clarify the offenses, issue the expected apologies, and start over, growing as a community from our past mistakes.
