Combined with the fact that that great majority of packages don't
change very much after they have become stable, I think most
package dependencies could be expressed very simply if there was
a simple syntax to specify *just* the major version. In the
context of setuptools, I think "*" could be used, as has been
suggested, but without leading =s. So, to specify foo version 2,
I think the following syntax would be very reasonable:
Why can't this be foo >2 ?
This wouldn't prevent someone from specifying a minimum version.
For example, to combine this with a minimum requirement of 2.5:
foo 2* >=2.5
This seems really weird to me.
I much prefer: "foo 2, >=2.5"
Would you be able to write
foo 2.4, >=2.4.3
