Rust Allocators Working Group
This WG aims to:
Define traits and other APIs for memory allocators, with the unstable
std::alloc::Allocatortrait as a starting point.
Make collections such as
Vec<T>able to use any allocator, most likely through an additional type parameter.
Discussion has historically happened in (at least) RFC #1398, tracking issue #32838, and tracking issue #42774. However individual GitHub threads become hard to navigate as they get longer. This repository’s issue tracker allows discussing and resolving various topics separately.
To be notified of every issue and pull request in this repository, try GitHub’s Watch button.
For lower-latency discussion, we have the
t-libs/wg-allocators stream on Zulip.
