Rust's community should provide mentoring at all levels #13
The Rust community is awesome, in large part because of how welcoming it is. But we could do a lot more to help grow people into roles in the project, including pulling together important work items at all level of expertise to direct people to, providing mentoring, and having a clearer on-ramp to the various official Rust teams. Outreach and mentoring is also one of the best avenues for increasing diversity in the project, which, as the survey demonstrates, has a lot of room for improvement.
While there's work here for all the teams, the community team in particular will continue to focus on early-stage outreach, while other teams will focus on leadership onboarding.
@GuillaumeGomez ownership borrowing and lifetimes are not programming basics, they're rust specific concepts. also, can you tone it down? calling someone's idea terrible is not something we should be doing in this community, no matter much you disagree with it.
