I’ve got some Julia application that was released, neatly instantiable from its MANIFEST file. Say it has versions
v2.0.0. There was a bug in
1.1.0, that was released 5 months ago. It was some issue with
MyPrivatePackage@v4.0.0 which I’ve now fixed. I’d like to produce a
v1.1.1 for my app. Unfortunately
(MyApp) pkg> add MyPrivatePackage@v4.0.1 # the fixed version
will update every dependency of
MyPrivatePackage to its latest version. Is there a non-recursive
add? We’ve been modifying MANIFEST, but it’s very painful and error-prone to find the tree SHAs
Julia 1.4 should at first try to add the package without doing any modifications to other packages and only if that fails try to upgrade stuff. Please try out 1.4 RC1 and see how it works.
up --fixed Foo@4.9.1 might work on 1.3.
FWIW on 1.4 it doesn’t seem to work, with
--fixed or without. Our
upped package doesn’t have any compatibility bounds, and its Project.toml hasn’t changed, so I don’t see why it would need to update ~30 other packages when I
up MyPackage. Also no other package (besides the environment I’m updating) depends on it.
Did I miss anything?
up Package acts pretty weird now, yes. I don’t even know the exact semantics it has. You can open an issue about it with how you want it to work.
