Hi Ivan,

Here are our getting started documents:

Our goal is to gradually add interchangeable Rust crates to Tor,
so that they can be used as alternatives to the corresponding C code.

You might find torguts helpful to understand Tor's current structure:

Other Core Tor developers know much more about Rust than I do.
They can tell you if there is anywhere we are focusing on right now.

You can start by building Tor with Rust, and making sure the unit tests pass.
We use "make check" to run a bunch of tests.
