Yes. That's how it works now.
Cool, then I think the behavior is correct. I think it is merely a
matter of communicating that things work this way.
Shame on you, Christian, are you a Grok developer? :)
Too little in the last time, I suppose. ;)
It's a clear DRY violation, the name of the package (and even the
version number) repeats here.
It's not clear to me that it's a DRY violation (see my argument that
those functions are actually orthogonal).
When applying DRY we still need to beware that we don't lock out
combinations that are currently possible/helpful.
This means we should not be satisfied with the response of communication
if there's a way to fix this. There are two ways to fix this:
* change 'develop'. It's clear this one is out. People like its current
behavior. I'm surprised not more people were surprised than me, but I
guess I'm just as smart as most people. :)
Again, I was surprised by this, but thinking about it and understanding
what's going on I think I like it the way it is. I agree that we need to
make it easier to understand and let people be less surprised.
* add a new option, 'really_develop', that adds the thing to [versions]
and to the develop path at the same time.
I really (pun semi-intended) don't like that name, but the idea seems
I experimented with recipes that change other recipes' configuration at
run-time, but had a bad experience because of the part-ordering that
prevents this, otherwise I'd say you could use a recipe for simpler
declaration of develop eggs. That would make you type more in each
