It looks like something is wrong with the way we calculate version numbers for workbench dev packages.

Merge commit 522d525a4 included changes in apps/workbench, so it should have made a new package.

Revision 278e5355 (diff)
Added by Tom Clegg about 2 years ago

Fix rails package versions for dev builds.

[ $goversion > $railsversion ] doesn't compare versions, it just
creates an empty file called $railsversion and returns success. As a
result, the arvados-api-server and arvados-workbench package
numbers (and the rebuild-or-reuse decisions) were based only on the
last change to cmd/arvados-server, disregarding more recent changes in
the respective Rails projects.
