Bug #17012

Updated by Ward Vandewege about 1 year ago

The build/version-at-commit.sh script doesn't handle the scenario right after a major release well.

For code that hasn't changed since the major release, it generates version numbers without taking the major release tag into account.

For instance; as of commit xxx on master, which is after the fork point of the 2.1-dev branch, these packages were generated for debian10:

<pre>
arvados-api-server_2.1.0-1_amd64.deb
arvados-client_2.1.0~dev20201012021212-1_amd64.deb
arvados-controller_2.1.0~dev20201012021212-1_amd64.deb

libpam-arvados-go_2.1.0~dev20201012021212-1_amd64.deb
python3-arvados-cwl-runner_2.2.0~dev20201015145956-1_amd64.deb
python3-arvados-fuse_2.2.0~dev20201015145956-1_amd64.deb
python3-arvados-python-client_2.2.0~dev20201015145956-1_amd64.deb
python3-crunchstat-summary_2.2.0~dev20201015145956-1_amd64.deb
</pre>

You can see that the python packages have a correct version number (2.2.0~dev20201015145956), which is because there are some commits in master (post the 2.1-dev branch fork) that touch the Python part of the codebase.

For other parts of the codebase, a version string is generated that starts with 2.1.0~dev, which is incorrect.
