Contributions wanted

Torchbear extends Rust's burgeoning ecosystem of libraries. Developers are welcomed to make small changes as well as high impact contributions, like adding bindings. There are many examples to learn from in the bindings directory, each with an interesting history. You'll learn a Rust library's API inside and out, and you'll put another tool into the hands of a growing userbase.
