We have `coq-metacoq.1.0~alpha+8.9`

and `coq-metacoq.1.0~alpha2+8.11`

. When someone who hasn't pinned Coq and uses Coq 8.11 runs `opam install coq-metacoq`

, he is prompted to downgrade Coq to 8.9.1. This is due to the following:

```
$ dpkg --compare-versions 1.0~alpha2+8.11 lt 1.0~alpha+8.9 && echo true
true
```

MetaCoq devs, are there any plans to fix this? For example, you could rename `coq-metacoq.1.0~alpha+X.Y`

to `coq-metacoq.1.0~alpha1+X.Y`

, as discussed elsewhere.

Same question from our side. Is a 8.12 release planned?

@Matthieu Sozeau @Théo Winterhalter do you have any objections to if I simply change the opam package version names in the opam archive (`alpha+8.X`

-> `alpha1+8.X`

? I'd really like to see this problem solved.

I also don't mind (and would gladly welcome the change), but I've not been working on this side of MetaCoq.

well, sometimes we all have to take on new roles when others are busy... OK then, I will just do the change

Go ahead. :)

Thanks for fixing that!

No problem, go ahead!

this is done now, for the record. Let me know if you need help with new packages, etc. - the Metacoq packages are some of the most complex ones we have.

in particular, are you sure you want to keep the (now-obsolete) dev packages for 8.8 in `extra-dev`

?

I think that one can be removed now.
