Worried about occasional npm malware scares? It's more common than you may think

It's everywhere....

One good thing about the "kernel" is that at least a couple of humans get to look at the code before hand.

One bad thing about rust's crates is that it is just like NPM. You need to specify version x.y.z of a specific package and there is no source level guarantee.

In the olden days you used to know that small version numbers would not break things and the big version would mean you need to make changes. There is no reason to this versioning madness.
