To clarify, one of our community members (cmr) compiles these posts to summarize all the interesting developments in the language over the course of each week. It's an indispensable resource for those of us who can't devote ourselves full-time to Rust development (really, I'm in the IRC channel every day and I wasn't aware of half of these). It's also probably the best way for casual observers to keep tabs on the progress of the language in general. You can see the full archives here:
Thanks again, Corey!
Both "this week in rust" and meeting minutes are posted to /r/rust, which is a good resource for those who want to keep an eye on how Rust is rapidly developing.
Pity that r/rust is still fairly low volume.
And I wasn't comparing to other programming subs, just saying comment threads don't get nearly as long as they ought to given how much activity is going on with Rust itself.
For someone eagerly awaiting a stable release this is a great way to keep track of what is changing and where Rust is heading!
