PSA: Xargo is now in maintenance mode #193
It actually has been in maintenance for a while but now I'm officially announcing it.
What does this mean?
It means that I am not going to add new features to Cargo or fix known papercuts. If you would like to work on that then I can add you as collaborator. I do, however, will fix future issues (hopefully zero of them), caused by nightly, that break my ARM Cortex-M development workflow.
What should I do now?
I have proposed adding Xargo's functionality to Cargo here. Doing that will fix the known papercuts (#189, #123, etc.) and make it easier to add desired features (e.g. #139). I suggest that you comment on that issue to get it green lighted and implemented (by someone other than me).
Why are you doing this?
Xargo was conceived as a temporary solution to the missing "build the sysroot" functionality in Cargo (cf. rust-lang/rfcs#1133). This is just me being firm about the "temporary" part.
