So please use "~" > as connector. From what you write, my understanding is: * if upstream is working on master *after* 1.2.0 has been released, you should use +git; * if upstream is working *towards* 1.2.0, ~git is the one for you. By the way, +git seems safer to me, because upstream might change his mind (remember when GNOME folks thought 2.30 would be 3.0?). -- Andrea Bolognani <firstname.lastname@example.org> Resistance is futile, you will be garbage collected.
