just stumbled upon creating an old example from a Manifest file.
It does not instantiate… because packages are no longer available from the registry (for my case it is DiffBase, but that does not matter).
It seems apt to include everything needed to actually reconstruct the project into the Manifest.toml. Hence it might be good to add the following:
- julia version
- all required registries, including git-tree-sha1 and giturl
what do you think?
