Hi! 👋 I am learning Rust and my company uses Pants at work. While browsing the documentation I found this link stating I could be pinged on the Rust changes to see a real world example of Rust usage. Is that still possible? If so, here's my github info. Thank you!

We also have a new #github-notifications channel that notifies of when new issues and discussions get opened or closed. Perhaps something like this is interesting? https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/issues/17456
I know @hundreds-father-404 has mentioned that they enjoyed exploring Rust via working on Pants Engine development. They may be able to point you at some closed issues that were particularly illuminating or otherwise interesting for a learner. Stu is also too modest to mention that the two of them appeared on Rustacean Station just this week, talking about Pants' Rust engine. If you haven't already heard that episode, you may find some interesting insights there are well.

I'm also wrapping up https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/pull/17495 today if you're interested in pairing or tackling part of it! What's left: 1. parallelize the first code block of futures with
2. step 3 from https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/issues/17448 to extract out the relevant part of code that only downloads missing content, and doesn't load it from local store

Awesome! I’ll take a look into these today.
