@brian-murray Agreed, simply checking to see whether or not germinate is installed or not is a good idea. However, checking which version is installed, as is currently done with debootstrap, is a bit overkill and I disagree with the debootstrap version check to begin with.
Realistically, if one is running the update script on the current LTS or higher, it shouldn't cause problems and the version check seems to be at least encouraging the update to run on the development version. This seems odd as germinate is pulling from whatever is configured in update.cfg regardless of what series it's being run on, so the version checks just seem like, as Steve put it, needless barriers. So, in summary, your check for germinate seems sane. A wholesale version check seems overkill and unnecessary. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Cinnamon Developers, which is subscribed to ubuntucinnamon-meta in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/2017786 Title: update script in ubuntu-meta not handling germinate or specified versions To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/edubuntu-meta/+bug/2017786/+subscriptions -- universe-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/universe-bugs
