Re: [Sc-devel] Re: Quarks and svn

Also, if somebody adds a new quark then the only way to get it is a new binary + quarks bundle. Shouldn't a package manager be able to let you know if new packages have become available and get them for you?

Hey felix,

I agree. including a bundle of quarks (that are up to date and work with the binary that you just downloaded) is a fine idea.

expecting those quarks to update is not a good idea. the binary doesn't update, so let's not expect to update the quark either.

I thought one of the points of the system is that you could get easy updates? (I seem to remember some people extolling that as a virtue...)

I would assume anything that is update-able would be tested against the current point release anyway, or?
