What happened is that Martin came late in the discussions in Distutils-SIG after I've forwarded the final mail in Catalog-SIG and after I did send it here (the mail where I said "Here's the mail I'll send to python-dev for PEP 345, if anyone sees a problem or something to add")
I was under the impression that previous art was being followed in the area of specifying dependencies. That previous art being the many existing dependency systems, which use obvious comparison operators (the ‘>’ ‘>=’ ‘<’ ‘<=’) and no range operators or implicit ranges.
So, if no one object, I propose to continue this thread about the way range should be compared, to see if we meet a consensus quite soon. If not, I guess we can go back to distutils-SIG and invite people over there, as we did for other topics.
Please, keep the operators simple and obvious, drawing on the existing conventions in other systems, so there's no need to have bike-shedding discussions over new syntax.
