The standard Rust style resulted from development and discussion within the Rust style team, between 2016 and 2018. After publishing the style guide, the Rust style team concluded its active work, by design.
However, as the Rust language develops, we have a regular need for improvements to the style guide, such as to support new language constructs. To solve both of these problems, [RFC 3309](https://rust-lang.github.io/rfcs/3309-style-team.html) has revived the Rust style team, with three goals:
* Making determinations about styling for new Rust constructs
* Evolving the existing Rust style
* Defining mechanisms to evolve the Rust style while taking backwards compatibility into account
