Rust Distro Meetup

This BoF/meetup is for Rust teams/maintainers across distros and upstreams interested in making their packagers' lifes easier.

We (various people active in the Debian Rust packaging team, but also active in other distros or upstream/downstream projects) have had discussions in various avenues with upstream projects about how to make eachothers lives easier.

Ideally, the BoF would collect input from "both sides" with the aim of distilling it into an extension of documents like Debian's UpstreamGuide, but specific for Rust (crates). Other potential output would be identifying gaps in distro tooling, potential for more exchange across distros or coordinated efforts to implement relevant missing features in upstream tooling such as cargo.
