Subject Re: are mesos package version names predictable?
Date Thu, 04 Feb 2016 21:51:42 GMT
Hey Erik,

those added values (e.g. “-0.2.190") come from Mesosphere's CI system which adds build-numbers
(the last digit) and some more “noise" for those distribution packages.

I will raise this issue internally and get back to you - hoping that we can get rid of these
not so useful extensions in a not too distant future.

hth,
Till
