As far as I understood, every revision that did not change any metadata will be marked as 'preferred installable', the revision before looses these tag. Any change to metadata will create an additional tag. So we end up with two 'preferred installable' tags. If I now specify a version that has no tag, toolshed will climb the revision history until it will find a 'preferred installation' tag. That has the same metadata as my specified version. In the end I get either my specified version or a later version, but not the necessarily the latest. > That is very different to what I (and Bjorn?) had understood you to mean > by "minimum", namely if we declare a dependency on revision X, then > we'll get either X or a LATER revision. Yes, that also confused me ... > I guess this means an option to explicitly ask for the latest revision > would be regarded as counter to the Galaxy reproducibility goals? The point of that short cut is that my git changelog will get spammed with revision changes and during development I will only need the latest version of a dependency, or? So leaving the revision field empty means the toolshed should include the latest current revision of my dependency automatically. For the reproducibility nothing will change I think. In the toolshed its filled with a specific revision. Only on my development box and git account its empty. > Thanks, > > Peter ___________________________________________________________ Please keep all replies on the list by using "reply all" in your mail client.
