I assume you updated rust-rustversion to update rust-anyhow?  If so, I have looked at the Cargo.toml of anyhow. It is very picky in the version of dependents, so if in the future we update rust-rustversion again, rust-anyhow will fail to build. To be robust to that, the Cargo.toml needs to be patched to be less picky, or alternatively you could wait for antioxidant which ignores the version specifications entirely.

Nevermind, from <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/specifying-dependencies.html>:

The string "0.1.12" is a version requirement. Although it looks like a specific version of the time crate, it actually specifies a range of versions and allows SemVer compatible updates. An update is allowed if the new version number does not modify the left-most non-zero digit in the major, minor, patch grouping. In this case, if we ran cargo update -p time, cargo should update us to version 0.1.13 if it is the latest 0.1.z release, but would not update us to 0.2.0. If instead we had specified the version string as 1.0, cargo should update to 1.1 if it is the latest 1.y release, but not 2.0. The version 0.0.x is not considered compatible with any other version.

(if it used = or <=, that would be a different manner)
