Thanks for providing those changes!
*If* the root folder (containing Cargo.toml) is also a (kate) projectBase, e.g.
because it is the root of a git repo (as is probably the case AFAIK), then the
following configuration should arrange that (barring some bug ;-) ):
The "global" section is inherited by each server part, and a (non-null) "root"
is interpreted either as an absolute path or a relative path wrt projectBase
(so, in this case = projectBase). If the Cargo.toml is not in a top-git
directory, it could be turned into kate project(Base) by adding a .kateproject,
which should then also work.
For now, that configuration behavior has been documented in code comments. If
that behavior/principle turns out to work well, then it obviously requires
better documentation. And if possible, have some UI that can convey that
