As the author of these bindings, I would not trust the underlying C library to handle malicious input. Verify the checksums of tablebase files! This is a good idea anyway.

Assuming that is done, I am quite confident in the corectness of the probing results, based on years of production usage and comparison with Syzygy tablebases.

Crates in the crates.io registry are tarball snapshots uploaded by crates' publishers. The registry is not using crates' git repositories. There is absolutely no guarantee that the repository URL declared by the crate belongs to the crate, or that the code in the repository is the code inside the published tarball. To review the actual code of the crate, it's best to use cargo crev open gaviota-sys. Alternatively, you can download the tarball of gaviota-sys v0.1.26 or view the source online.
