    On Rust’s “diversity numbers being terrible” and worse than the industry – is it worse than open source? For example, I think the last time anyone checked, there were many fewer women open source programmers vs. paid career programmers.

    That is, I think all open source projects have this issue (and and HN seem to as well :-/ )

      My impression is that Rust’s gender ratio number is in fact worse than open source. One possible reason is that compiler is a field gender-coded to be masculine. That is, I think Rust-the-project’s number is worse than Rust ecosystem (e.g. bodil, the maintainer of im crate, is a woman) but similar to, say, LLVM.
