that way we eliminate the reason that $rev and $date were used (before there was a build contrib..)

$rev etc are pretty broken on subversion, and totally gone in git.

I should do penance and implement it - but if someone else does it, it will happen sooner.

Doesn't this stop upload of an older version if a release was done by mistake? Or there was a flawed attach or other issue during the previous upload.

If this is implemented it probably needs an exception. I know sometimes it's taken me several attempts to get a full upload completed.

so long as it aborts for ./ upload it will stop me from doing the wrong thing, which will achieve what $rev was intended to when we were still on cvs.. which is all I want...

Okay, so I release BlahPlugin 1.2. Upload fetches the topic to recover the form, and saves a new version. Topic now at 1.2. Then it starts the attach. Attaches tgz, and then zip, and that one times out and crashes. So I try again. Now the web topic is at 1.2, aren't I stuck?

why would we write something as dumb as that?

as upload is fetching the topic to recover the form already, all we need to do is compare before we save a new version.

While I agree this would be nice to have, I don't consider it Urgent. Reprioritised as an enhancement.
