Re: setup.ini has multiple "prev" entries ... Why?

Hi John (Turney),

After I had downloaded and exercised setup version 2.882, I noticed
that setup.ini has multiple (2?) "prev" entries per package ...

Why? Did I miss one of your announcements mentioning this change?


Because of the way setup works, the last [test] section is the version which is selected when 'test' is selected, so a specific ordering of the sections
 would be required. ...

So, for example we could have:

@ foo
version: 250-0
version: 241-0
version: 243-0
version: 251-0
version: 252-0

So ... if I read the above correctly, the "prev" entries can be ordered
arbitrarily with respect to each other (within a package section) ?????

(and basically, the same question with respect to the "test" entries)

Meaning, one has to "interpret" the version id of each "prev" entry,

    in order to be able to establish the _latest_ "prev" entry (i.e. the
    version of the package before the current one) ?

Yes, the "prev" versions in your example are ordered incrementally, I can
see that ... (but, it is an example!)

However your message (preceding the example) only specifies an additional
requirement with respect to the "test" entries.



Snippet from setup.ini: (where the "test" entries are definitely NOT
 ordered "incrementally")
