Re: On boarding of a new CF system build pack for Rust
Hi all - My team at VMware contributes to both the v2 Cloud Foundry buildpacks as well as the Paketo Buildpacks project (v3). Just to re-iterate a couple points above and add a few others, you have a couple options here:
As others in the thread have mentioned, my team at VMware is focusing most of our development efforts on v3 Paketo Buildpacks and likely won't have the bandwidth to build a v2 Rust buildpack. That said, Rust is definitely growing in popularity, so I'm happy to discuss any of these options above in depth, André. Feel free to keep the discussion going here or start a thread in the #buildpacks channel on CF slack.

Custom buildpacks (v2) can be installed in airgapped and enterprise CF. You convert the buildpack and it’s dependencies into a zip file and the CF admin installs it for all users to share, like you would upgrade a buildpack from the core CF team.
Paketo buildpacks (v3) — your own plus upstream — are baked into your builder Docker image, so again you have control over what buildpack you are using across all apps.
