I am trying to use
pkg> dev --local for a package available locally, but it seems that
--local is ignored and no copy in
dev is made. Is this expected behavior or a known issue?
dev --local works for registered packages of course.
I can replicate the issue in
master and 1.5.2.
I’d expect this behaviour.
I did this awhile back with
dev --local "path_name"
or something like that. Sorry for the lack of precision, but it was a few months ago.
I think it should just be clarified in the docstring that
--local only works when you give a package as an argument, and not a path (similar to https://github.com/JuliaLang/Pkg.jl/pull/2037/files).
Thanks, I will make a small PR for the docs.
Is there a rationale for this, or just not implemented yet?
