The focus of this year is on project health, specifically as it relates to Rust's governance structure.
* Establishing charters for teams in the Rust project
* Provide for unified process and vocabulary across the project
* Creating a single place for tracking a list of ongoing projects
The core team will drive these efforts in coordination with all Rust teams and working groups. As the Rust teams have grown over the years, there is increasingly less cross-chatter that naturally happens due to shared membership of teams, and this RFC aims to improve our written documentation to provide for a smoother onboarding process for new team members, as well as improving the ability of current team members to evaluate who to consult on new ideas or projects.
The Rust project governance has grown into a large and diverse structure, with most teams not having well defined expectations about scope and membership. As the project has grown, we have also struggled with a unified place for new and existing contributors to learn about active efforts and join in. Our efforts to establish charters and unified vocabulary will help contributors new and old to navigate our organizational structure. Our expectation is that this work will also help each team better understand what their aims are and will help the core team better serve the team's needs.
