First, thank you for your reply and your work.

Second, I include myself in the users of ripgrep (and the silver searcher before), I also dislike the slight waiting time when I have a better alternative.

Third, I'd like one those to be a default package in Debian.

Yeah, I'd love that too! I know there have been people pushing on this, but AFAIK, it's stalled on "how do we package Rust applications in Debian."

(I don't use Debian and I'm not terribly familiar with their policies, so I'm not really familiar with the details.)


Rustc and Cargo are packaged for Debian; both are Rust applications. That shouldn't be the holdup.


Oh, I thought Cargo hadn't made it into Debian. I'm way behind the times then. :-)


It's not in stable, but it is in sid and buster. Now that rustc builds with Cargo, you gotta get both. :)

https://crates.io/crates/debcargo is also a big help.
