I guess these values mean different things, but it sure isn’t obvious, at least to me, why they differ. 🙂
I’m just picking a package I happened to be installing – this is systemic, nothing wrong (AFAIK) with MoreLINQ (awesome project!)
So, with ‘stable only’, you can still get a ‘beta’ for MoreLINQ – the Created by says Jon Skeet
Switch to ‘Include Prerelease’ and the “MoreLINQ 1.0 BETA” goes away (which is weird – I would have expected to see both the ‘Stable’ and ‘Prerelease’ options listed?) and is replaced with ‘just’ a ‘MoreLINQ’, but then Created by is different
In both cases, the ‘Last Updated’ lists today’s date (December 5th).
What does the NuGet page say? Well, the main package page says it was last updated on November 16th
The version history shows nothing changed today – this table doesn’t include the information, but the upper / more recent 2 entries are tagged as Prelease and the one from June 3rd, 2011 (1.0 BETA 1.0 – awesome version number 🙂 is tagged stable (well, not tagged prerelease)
And the Owners is listed as Aziz (raboof)
Maybe I just don’t ‘think NuGet’ correctly, but at least on the surface it seems a little confusing. 🙂
Guess I should go file a couple of bugs on nuget.org now!
