Languages like C and C++ are standardized. They are fully specified in an internationally recognized standards document. Languages like Python, Swift and Rust do not have such a standards document.
Should Rust be standardized? Why, or why not? In this blog post, I try to explain why I do think we need an accurate specification, why I do not think we need “standardization” (depending on your definition), and give an overview of the current state of Rust’s stability and specification efforts.
