referencing #4087 if the version is smaller or equals
an error is thrown, can be overwritten be --force
smaller/equals version than current will throw an error
I'm -1 on this. I don't see this being helpful often enough.
i bet people who accicently switched to a lower version would disagree ;)
if not helpful often enough, it would also make sense to remove the check for the same version, wouldnt it?
Not the way I see it, because that feature already exists.
i don't see that as a valid argument.
I'm not really interested in bikeshedding on something this trivial. If someone else thinks this should be merged, fine, but I don't really see the point, so I'm not going to merge it.
Could someone please make an executive decision on this?
Executive decisions require @isaacs, who is usually pretty busy.
I agree with @luk- – this doesn't make sense as an error or a warning. There are many good uses for versions that are lower than preceding, e.g. releasing a maintenance version of an older release series from the same repo. Thanks for putting the time into this and the discussion on #4087, though!
