Hello all,

I just read this article, called "Supporting Linux kernel
development in Rust"
and it looks like the future is set, and particularly the Yocto
project should prepare for it.

As a gnome in Yocto 'enthusiast' there is not much to say but: yes
yes. We have all these rust blockers as librsvg, mozjs. ->
This has been talked about a lot but there is work to be done to get
this into core. Not many people seem willing to step up and do that
work so progress has been slow.

The hardest part may be getting the crate fetcher into bitbake in an
acceptable form.

I'm all in favour too, as long as it really is sorted to be a first
class citizen.
