[netCDF #VTD-374517]: Take ownership of Rust's NetCDF crate?

Hello Miles,

I'd love to discuss this more, but the netCDF team at Unidata has very limited 
bandwidth currently, and Rust is not a language we have any experience with.   
I'll be happy to take a look at the bindings, and happy to be a part of any 
discussion regarding the future of the bindings, but without additional 
community support I'm not sure how much support Unidata can provide in the near 

That said, there is precedent for Unidata providing support for netCDF language 
bindings without taking ownership of them, i.e. netcdf4-python.  

So, as I mentioned, I will take a look at the bindings and I'll raise this 
question internally.  In the meantime, feel free to tag me in on any 
conversations on GitHub regarding the future of this project;  I'm @WardF on 

Thanks, have a great weekend,
