    I guess the problem you are seeing is this one: cargo ./target fills with outdated artifacts as toolchains are updated/changed #5026.
  • Announcing Rust 1.51.0 | 2021-03-25
    Am I reading this correctly that these two combined result in dev-dependencies getting ignored unless explicitly asked for? That would fix the longstanding issue due to which distros have to patch the Cargo.toml of crates to prevent Cargo from pulling in dependencies that can only be available on other platforms (e. g. winapi). | 2021-03-25
    No, unfortunately.

    With a big caveat: you can't have a dependency on a crate that is a dylib/cdylib or even staticlib in Cargo.toml. Your only way out is to have a that somehow builds the dependency with cargo. Which, if you're using a workspace, will deadlock.

    This is/was a known bug. The fix and the related resolver changes were stabilized just recently and are coming with the 1.51 release which will become stable on March 25th, i.e. in roughly a month.
