I have a sysimage (which happens to include Makie, GLMakie, CairoMakie and MakieCore) which was built in a (temporary) environment where the Makie packages were included via
]develop --local. When I start Julia using the sysimage, and activate a temporary environment it doesn’t appear to be possible to either
dev the necessary packages so that they can be
It seems like the 2 sane options would be to:
adda package from the appropriate branch of the repo (in this case, my fork), but this errors:

devthe local checkout of Makie, which also errors:

What does seem to work is to start Julia without a sysimage, create a new persistent environment,
]dev --local the packages into that environment, and then restart Julia with the sysimage.
I guess my question is, is it impossible to tell Pkg to
dev) any packages (modules?) that are included in a custom sysimage, when running with that sysimage itself? Or, is setting
Pkg.respect_sysimage_versions(false) as the error messages suggests what I want?
More generally, what is the correct workflow for adding packages to an environment, when those packages are included in a sysimage?
