cargo owner


cargo-owner - Manage the owners of a crate on the registry


cargo owner [OPTIONS] --add LOGIN [CRATE]
cargo owner [OPTIONS] --remove LOGIN [CRATE]
cargo owner [OPTIONS] --list [CRATE]


This command will modify the owners for a crate on the registry. Owners of a crate can upload new versions and yank old versions. Non-team owners can also modify the set of owners, so take care!

This command requires you to be authenticated with either the --token option or using cargo-login(1).

If the crate name is not specified, it will use the package name from the current directory.

See the reference for more information about owners and publishing.
