Newly released Debian 10 (Buster) is the first to contain several packages built in Rust. We uploaded ripgrep, fd-find, exa, hexyl, process-viewer. rustc is 1.34.2, and we have a tool called `debcargo` for preparing packages from crates.io. Crates are packaged as source code in a build-dep debian package, we created around 500 packages. A lot of work is ahead for Debian version 11 Bullseye. If you want to help out, drop by on IRC at #debian-rust on irc.oftc.net.
