Incremental compilation broken

I get this:

what is wrong?

How do you get this? I.e. what’s the MWE that leads to these warnings being displayed?

Chances are that you include file “irrationals.jl” in two separate places in your code.

I never explicitly include irrationsl.jl, I only import Packages that might use it.

Hence my question for what you’re doing to get this warning - without an MWE, all we can do is list potential sources of the problem, like Francois did, but that’s not a very efficient way of working this out.

I know, sry I will try to post a MWE

It can be hard to make a MWE for these sorts of errors such that others can reproduce. In the past, I used to get these sorts of warnings when I kept a lot of packages in my main v1.6 environment. Ever since I’ve started keeping only a very minimal v1.6 environment (only Revise, BenchmarkTools, etc) and adding packages mainly to project environments, I don’t see these warnings any longer. So I suspect it’s related to challenges with correctly stacking environments.
