Topic: coq.dev package

The current coq.dev package in opam is very misleading. Upgrading it does not force an upgrade of coq-core.dev, is there a way to fix this?

I don't know how to make the devscheme actually pull dependencies; when using dune-release for example a version number based on the git describe is added so these kind of things can be tracked properly.

I don't think this can be fixed - if the opam packages says to packages are generally compatible, they should be generally compatible. If coq.dev and coq-core.dev heavily depend on each other, it would probably be better to make them one package.

There is no coq-core.dev package in coq-opam-archive though, is there?

view this post on Zulip Matthieu Sozeau (Jun 15 2021 at 07:31):

No, I think it's taken directly from the coq.git archive

But I get:

So clearly coq.dev depends on it

I see your point about the dependency being broken though. The should be special support to say that you want the exact same git commit

view this post on Zulip Matthieu Sozeau (Jun 15 2021 at 07:42):

A general opam upgrade does work as expected, it's just that opam upgrade coq.dev doesn't

view this post on Zulip Théo Zimmermann (Jun 15 2021 at 07:44):

Is opam upgrade even supported when you choose to pin directly from the git repository? In any case, coq.dev from the core-dev repository should keep working (in a fresh switch at least).

Did you happen to pin the Opam package from the Coq repository? Otherwise, I don't understand how it could take precedence over the one in the Opam repository.

view this post on Zulip Matthieu Sozeau (Jun 15 2021 at 07:47):

Well according to the opam info, my coq.dev package does come from coq-core-dev

opam pin list?

view this post on Zulip Matthieu Sozeau (Jun 15 2021 at 07:48):

But that's probably misleading as it does have a dependency on coq-core.dev which I can't see from looking at the coq/opam file in coq-core-dev

view this post on Zulip Matthieu Sozeau (Jun 15 2021 at 07:48):

Yep, it's pinned to the git repo

view this post on Zulip Matthieu Sozeau (Jun 15 2021 at 07:50):

So the only surprising thing is that it tells me that coq.dev is part of the coq-core-dev repository, while it's actually a git source (it does report the pin and hash though)

view this post on Zulip Théo Zimmermann (Jun 15 2021 at 08:36):

Yeah, the behavior of opam with respect to pins from git repositories has always been puzzling to me.
