Can a user delete their package from cargo?

Hi, I’m new to rust and I’m scared about package dependency system. I need to know if a dependency can be deleted by its author (like they can do in github repos) and thus making my project unusable?

No, see https://stackoverflow.com/questions/52639162/how-to-delete-a-published-crate-from-crates-io/52641128#52641128

Also see the cargo documentation and crates.io’s policies. We only remove crates from the registry in cases where we are legally required to do so or the crate violates Rust’s Code of Conduct.
