[Pkg-rust-maintainers] Bug#967954: debcargo: generated ranged build-deps result in "BD-uninstallable" on debian buildd network

Package: debcargo
Version: 2.4.2-1
Severity: normal
Control: affects -1 + rust-buffered-reader

Looking at buffered-reader version 0.18.0, upstream lists dependencies
in Cargo.toml including:

version = ">= 1.0.1, < 1.0.16"
optional = true

debcargo 2.4.2 converts this to a b-d list:

Build-Depends: […]
  librust-flate2-1.0.15+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.14+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.13+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.12+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.11+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.10+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.9+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.8+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.7+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.6+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.5+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.4+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.3+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.2+default-dev <!nocheck> |
  librust-flate2-1.0.1+default-dev <!nocheck>,

But https://buildd.debian.org/status/package.php?p=rust-buffered-reader
says "BD-uninstallable" for all platforms, for example:

    rust-buffered-reader build-depends on missing:
     - librust-flate2-1.0.15+default-dev:amd64

note that librust-flate2+rust-backend-dev version 1.0.13-2 is in
unstable, and it has:

Provides: […] librust-flate2-1.0.13+default-dev (= 1.0.13-2)

Clearly, the solver is ignoring all but the first build-depends in an
"or"ed dependency.  debcargo probably needs to figure out a way around
this :/

(or, maybe something about the resolver for the build daemon network
needs to be fixed to try subsequent entries in an "or"ed dependency?  if
so, feel free to reassign this ticket)

I can work around this in rust-buffered-reader by dropping that
particular constraint (it is only added upstream to keep the MSRV low,
which doesn't matter for debian).
