Package: rustc
Version: 1.40.0+dfsg1-5
Severity: normal

Dear Awesome Rust Debian Maintainers,

I notice that rustup is not packaged for Debian. One option is to go through
snap (https://snapcraft.io/install/rustup/debian) but native packages are

Since rustup is used by many projects, it would be great to have it natively on

apt-get install rustup

What do you think?

Best regards,
