`mach vendor rust` failed:

$ ./mach vendor rust

The details of the failure are as follows:

emilio fixed this manually:

i'm don't know went wrong here; if it's a mach, cargo, or some other issue, but this failure is unexpected.
It's certainly possible that this is a bug in the way we invoke cargo, but I don't know for sure.
This looks like a legitimate error I think, but I'm curious how you also got into such a situation. Assuming that the Cargo.lock is always in sync with the Cargo.toml files in the repository, this error shouldn't come up. If, however, the Cargo.lock is out of sync (e.g. you just updated one of the Cargo.toml) files then it's possible for this error to arise.

Are you sure that Cargo.lock is in sync with all the Cargo.tomls when `./mach vendor rust` is executed? You can test that out by just running a normal build, and every time Cargo does a build it'll keep the Cargo.lock in sync (if possible)

this part of automation isn't capable of building; it just pulls in changes from github/servo and runs `mach vendor rust` after every change prior to pushing the changes to integration-autoland.
Ah ok, then in that case it sounds like this is an expected error. The `cargo update` command above only allows changes to the `gkrust` package, nothing else. When pulling in this Servo update, however, it looked like it was required that the `smallvec` crate *also* change (needs to get upgraded from 0.3.2 to 0.3.3). In that case Cargo wasn't allowed to update smallvec when it needed to, so an error was generated.

So the question would be, in what condition would that happen?

I've seen both successful and failed revendoring in the past, and from that it is not clear to me why some work but others don't.

For example, some changes with successful revendoring (and you can see the revendoring commit from the "child" link):
* https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/475503cada7c
* https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/80aba64b0c6b
* https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/f30e76c54839

and some changes failed to get revendoring automatically:
* https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/a91c94c93cfc (manually revendored in https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/51736db67723)
* https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/2e058bcd4bce (manually revendored in https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/e529bfc7e59c)
Sure yeah, I'll try to help explain. Let's take a look at https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/a91c94c93cfc more closely.

The Servo change brought an upgraded version on the dependency of `app_units`. This was previously locked to 0.4.0 but new crates were added which require '>= 0.4.1, < 0.5.0'. The Cargo.lock in Servo changed to refelect this, but the other Cargo.lock files in the repo were not.

So as part of the autovendoring I think the following command is running: (please correct me if I'm wrong though)

    cargo update --manifest-path toolkit/library/rust/Cargo.toml -p gkrust

The Cargo.lock for this project at toolkit/library/rust/Cargo.lock previously locked app_units to 0.4.0. This means that when you run `cargo update` you're only allowing Cargo to update the `gkrust` dependency (the `-p` flag passed). This, however, fails because Cargo thinks it's not allowed to update the `app_units` dependency. This then in turn creates an unresolvable resolution graph. Presumably gkrust transitively depends on some Servo stuff eventually, but this now requires 0.4.1 instead of 0.4.0. As 0.4.0 is locked down Cargo won't hand out 0.4.1, which causes this error.

Does that make sense for at least why it's happening? The three successful commits that auto-revendored look different in the sense that they either:

* Just added a new dependency. In this case Cargo can choose freely for the new dep, including an existing locked version, so there's no conflict regenerating a lock file on `cargo update -p gkrust`
* Changing major versions of an existing dep, similar to what happened when adding a new dep.

Basically the successful cases never raised the minimum version requirement *without* changing the major version. In other words, if a version requirement is bumped from 0.4.0 to 0.4.1, it can cause the breakage you're seeing. If the requirement is bumped from 0.4.0 to 0.5.0, then you won't see breakage.

So given all that I think Cargo can do better here. It should know what `cargo update -p gkrust` can still update `app_units`. It's still a conservative update and you shouldn't have to manually pass in `-p app_units` as well. I haven't though too much about this though, and may take some time to implement.
So it sounds like a non-breaking version bump would break the command, while a breaking version bump would be fine. That, to be honest, sounds pretty weird.

If Cargo can do better here, that would be great. I'm not sure what can we do in the mean time... Maybe parsing the cargo output and figure out the package to update? That sounds rather fragile...
I've filed an upstream issue for this: https://github.com/rust-lang/cargo/issues/4127
