Yes, the version checking in the bootstrap script is
quite stupid. Right now it looks for specific versions only.
It would be ideal if we could look for a range.
The question is: is this really needed? Can the
script not simply issue a warning and go on?
I'm certainly open to changing it. Can you provide a patch?
Yes, but first we have to decide, what should the patch do?
Imho that patch should not block execution at all, only warn
for a possile mismatch of version numbers.
The point is, until we have a firm spec how all applications
should emit their version nummers over de command line,
there will not be a stable solution for version number
I have written a script which does a reasonable job for in most
situations for version numbers up to three level version numbers.
However, this is quite lengthy, and still is not bullitproof.
I think this is not adequate for this situation.
If you agree with me that a simple version comparison with a
two digit number, emmiting a warning only is sufficient in this
case i can make the patch.
