Friend of the Tree

The Rust Team likes to occassionally recognize people who have made outstanding contributions to The Rust Project, its ecosystem, and its community. These people are 'friends of the tree'.

This week's friend of the tree was ... Toby Scrace.

"Today I would like to nominate Toby Scrace as Friend of the Tree. Toby emailed me over the weekend about a login vulnerability on crates.io where you could log in to whomever the previously logged in user was regardless of whether the GitHub authentication was successful or not. I very much appreciate Toby emailing me privately ahead of time, and I definitely feel that Toby has earned becoming Friend of the Tree."
