17:03 nine ugexe: I think handling '*' versions by always upgrading is the only sane option.
17:03 nine ugexe: well the other one would be to prohibit '*' as a version
17:04 nine Which I could live quite well with. I'm not aware of any other system that would allow a whatever version and I have no idea for a use case. When I don't really have a version yet, I just use 0.1 or 0.0.1
17:06 nine rev-deps are still an open issue anyway. The rev-deps files are still written to by PrecompilationRepository instead of the PrecompilationStore and we only look at rev-deps in the same repo as we install to.
17:07 nine I've pondered removing the rev-deps handling alltogether but install time is the only time we know we can write to a repo, so we should use the chance to update precomp files of site/vendor and perl
17:07 ugexe rev-deps still needs non-Precompilation related access though, as this is intended for removing the source files
17:08 nine You can always find them via .installed and reading the meta info
17:09 ugexe right. but i would hope that this could be made so you can easily write a 1 liner to install or uninstall a module (if it has no dependencies)
17:10 ugexe i generate the revdeps list exactly how you mention, but it just seems it would be useful internally as well
17:11 nine definitely
