Hi Martin & Efraim,

Thinking more about it, I’m not sure I fully understand why we need to
pay attention to semver here:

Martin Becze <address@hidden> skribis:

The reason I wonder is that the HTTP API gives us rather precise
dependency requirements:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
scheme@(guix import crate)> (crate-version-dependencies (car (crate-versions 
(lookup-crate "blake2-rfc"))))
$8 = (#<<crate-dependency> id: "arrayvec" kind: normal requirement: "^0.4.6"> 
#<<crate-dependency> id: "constant_time_eq" kind: normal requirement: "^0.1.0"> 
#<<crate-dependency> id: "data-encoding" kind: dev requirement: "^2.0.0"> 
#<<crate-dependency> id: "clippy" kind: normal requirement: "^0.0.41">)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

In the example above, the importer could “just” fetch version 0.4.6 of
arrayvec, version 0.1.0 of constant_time_eq, etc., no?

It’s an approximation because the caret (^) means more than just this,
but hopefully it’s a good approximation.

Am I missing something?
