Rust Crate: libsyslog

A couple of months ago I released two Rust crates, my first public ones ever. They are published on as libsyslog and libsyslog-sys. During the past week I held a presentation about them at our local Rust group's 36:th meetup. No recording was made, but the slide deck is available via the thumbnail below.

Those slides differ slightly from the version actually shown during the event. Some slides have had aesthetic changes, but the slides are also updated after correcting a major bug. As it turns out, one of the best ways of getting a proper code review is to stand in front of a somewhat large group of people, inviting them to spot your mistakes.

In case blogging also invites similar sharp eyes, it might be appropriate to point out that I do realize the libsyslog-sys crate could probably be considered redundant with the libc crate already exposing the same API. An upcoming release is highly likely to retire it.
