I started a work on a libvirt binding for Rust [0]. Not all of the API
is implemeted but I think it's now in a usable state.


The code is licensed under LGPL-2.1, it's tested by a CI running
libvirt 1.2.0, 2.5.0, 3.3.0. There are unit tests, integration tests
and some examples to exercise the code (some parts are still not
covered) I also have checked the code with valgrind to avoid any
memory leaks.


This is nice, I am thinking of trying to add a module support for
modules written in Rust, but that's just a fun project.

Anyway, if I may give you an advice, it would be way nicer if some of
the bindings were automatically generated.  Libvirt provides all the
infomartion necessary in libvirt{,-qemu-lxc}.xml files for you to be
able to do this.  We already do this for the python bindings, for
example.  That way they automatically support trivial function additions
in newer libvirt versions.

Do you think that we can consider it ready to be hosted by libvirt.org
GIT server ? That could help to get new contributors also interested
by Rust and improve the code and coverage of the API.
