I'd rather have the dot, e.g. "foo 2.* >= 2.5", just for clarity:
- It makes the intent clearer (that you want any version in the
"two dot" release line).
- It disambiguates the case where the version number might have
double digits (e.g, '0.1' vs. '0.10').
This depends on how the * is interpreted. setuptools already treats
dots as optional in many cases and this would be one more. I also
prefer the last syntax I suggested without the "*". So, the example
"foo 2, >=2.5"
(I forgot commas in my earlier examples.)
Without the *, I think there is less of tendency to interpret the
specification as a glob.
Another feature I'm not sure is already in setuptools:
- I *don't* want dev releases to replace production ones
implicitly: no package should be able to install a non-released
version without explicit callout. If this isn't already the
default behavior, then I'd like syntax for spelling it.
What do you mean by a "dev" release?
