I keep only [curr] versions of packages in my local cache. In 2.249, setup will
only show the version actually present on disk in the click through list. In
2.259, setup shows the [prev] version as well, and, if I try to install it, it
removes the [curr] version of the package, and completes with _no error_,
leaving the package uninstalled. ('The package' for my testing was unzip, curr
5.50-1, prev 5.41-1)
I am trying to build setup at each revision from 2.249 to 2.259 to find when
this happened, but I am having extreme difficulty with CVS. In order to get the
revision, I am doing (for say, 2.250):
$ cvs log ChangeLog | grep -A 1 -F 'revision 2.250'
date: 2002/06/10 09:58:24; author: rbcollins; state: Exp; lines: +8 -2
$ cvs update -D '2002/06/10 09:58:24'
and then adding 1sec to the time until no files change.
If anyone can suggest a better way of doing this, I would very much like to know
