Subject RE: Question about revision conflicts during resolve/retrieve
Date Tue, 11 Dec 2007 18:15:58 GMT
Does the new(er) version of ivy now support a publish which will replace
all non-specific versions in the module file with specific versions
(i.e. 1.+ -> 1.3.2 when it is published)?

For build reproducibility we rather recommend to fix revisions when
publishing your module, but it would be interesting (at least people not
following this recommendation), so feel free to open an issue.
