Misguided newer cabal-install version notice #1055
If you build Cabal and cabal-install from master and run
Steps to reproduce:
# build Cabal $ cd cabal/Cabal $ ghc --make Setup && ./Setup configure --user $ ./Setup build && ./Setup install # either bootstrap cabal $ cd ../cabal-install $ sh bootstrap.sh $ ~/.cabal/bin/cabal update # or build cabal with installed cabal $ cabal configure && cabal build $ dist/build/cabal/cabal update
The values leading to the notice in checkForSelfUpgrade are as follows:
currentVersion: "0.17.0" preferredVersionRange: "-any" laterPreferredVersions: ["1.16.0"]
Is it possible that cabal-install's version is erroneously compared with Cabal's?
