Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-1228) latest-compatible dependency manager seems broken (acts like strict dep manager)

latest-compatible dependency manager seems broken (acts like strict dep manager)

                 Key: IVY-1228
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.2.0-RC1, 2.1.0
         Environment: I believe all environments are affected, but I am testing in a Linux
2.6 Environment using a 1.5 JDK and Ant 1.7.1
            Reporter: Carl Myers
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 2.2.0

It appears the "latest-compatible" conflict manager is acting like the strict conflict manager
in the following case.

The actual error I get is:
impossible to resolve dependencies:
        myorg#mydeps; (needed by []) conflicts with myorg#mydeps;
(needed by [myorg#myclient;, myorg#myshared;])

How is this error even possible if "latest compatible" is in use?  Surely, the version ending
in "325888" is the latest compatible, 326356 is later but not compatible.

Looking at the log, I see:
DEPRECATED: using conflicts section is deprecated: please use hints section instead. Ivy file
URL: ...
Is this why it isn't working?  Did backcompat get broken and I need to change my ivy.xml?

I also see:
BLACKLISTING [myorg#mydeps; blacklisted to evict myorg#mydeps;
in favor of myorg#mydeps; in myorg#myserver; for default]

It looks like 326356 is blacklisted in favor of the newer version, but some package is not
compatible with that newer version so it ought to use the older one instead.

I tested and confirmed this problem with Ivy 2.2.0-rc1 (20100629224905), and also Ivy 2.1.0
(20090925235825).  I confirmed this problem is NOT present in 2.0.0 (20090108225011).

Because my continuous build environment is constantly building and publishing new versions,
a local build is impossible unless "latest-compatible" works.  The fact that it works with
older ivy is kinda suggestive it is a bug (or changed behavior), though I am glad to try any
suggestions you folks might have.

I will be pulling the code and investigating myself if I can find time.
