Description (last modified by teor)

At the moment, Tor's Travis CI runs on stable rust, and our Appveyor (Windows) CI doesn't run rust at all (#26954).

But in our privcount_shamir work (#25669), we've discovered some important bugs by running beta and nightly.

Since Rust releases every 6 weeks, we should run CI on rust stable and beta, so that we catch any show-stoppers before they are stable.

We might also want to consider an allow_failures nightly build.

If we choose to support a lower version of rust than stable (when a major distro freezes on a lower version), we should also CI that version.

Let's review these tickets at the next meeting using our 041-proposed process.

They're on the roadmap, so the review should focus on ticket size and team capacity (and sponsor expectations).
