On distutils-sig, a vocal fraction seems to think otherwise. From my short interaction there, I now think that comparison operators are indeed hard to use, and that the concept of a half-open interval, and how you can use relational operators involving the endpoints to denote it, is (apparently) *quite* advanced.
From Len and my interactions, I will wrap up and make one addition
to the set. I'm adding one last proposition.
Requires a particular python version.
Specifies a range of python versions.
So this would work for Python 2.7 but *not* 2.7.1? Or does 2.7 implicitly mean a range of all Python 2.7 versions?
If not how do we specify up to the last version of 2.6 (which may not yet be released) but *not* 2.7?
Specifies anything above a particular python version.
(No need to ask me about a less than operator. I think a packager would feel more comfortable with using the range operator than a 'less-than' operator. There just comes a point where people don't bother with old interpreter versions)
That wraps it up for the vocal faction...
Happy new year
