Our engineering staff are currently three primary areas of focus:
- A security initiative, helping ensure that the Rust ecosystem is as secure as possible.
- Infrastructure, driving engineering and efficiency efforts to ensure that the growing number of Rust developers have a great experience while also trying to manage costs.
- A potential specification effort, providing people and resources to help the Project deliver a useful and quality language specification.

Distinguished AdvisorsThe Rust Foundation executive staff consults with several unpaid advisors outside of the Rust Project who have been selected for their policy-focused knowledge of the Rust community, open source software organizations, and the nonprofit sector. The neutral perspectives of these "Distinguished Advisors" help us consider many different angles when making decisions that fall under their areas of expertise.
