Hey folks, I’ve updated the top post to link back to meeting notes and the video recording. Please check it out, and if I missed your name or user handel from the attendance, please feel free to add yourself via a suggested change comment; it’d be good to know your usernames.

As an action item, please subscribe to future ROS Rust WG announcements by checking that you’ve increased the default notification level for the wg-rust tag, and similarly for any other attended WGs.

To change any of these defaults, see your user preferences, or visit the tag page, and use the notification control above the topic list (i.e. the bell notification icon), on the right hand side.

Next meeting’s agenda will focus on colcon-cargo; improving support for Rust and cargo within current ROS2 build tools and colcon workspaces. Please familiarize yourself with colcon and cargo.
