Apparently there are many programming language specific package managers these days. Each with different takes on versioning, dependency resolution, version pinning / locking etc..
Usually I see Ruby’s bundler and Rust’s cargo heralded quite a lot on sites like Reddit and Hacker news.
What are the current best practices in programming language package management? Eg: local installation V/s global installation of packages, locking to version V/s just requiring major version be the same.
Also what are the important disadvantages and advantages of each of these choices?
