Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:49:40 EST
Description of Problem:
up2date wishes to 'update' packages that are more recent than the package
on its server. up2date is version 18.104.22.168
Steps to Reproduce:
1. get current gnomeicu (0.96.1)from gnomeicu.gdev.net and install
2. run up2date
up2date will want to 'update' gnomeicu 0.96.1 to 0.94.1
gnomeicu shouldn't appear in list of potential updates.
same problem for grip 2.94
