Hi Treeve (and all),

did you intend to trigger recasts on every mesalib minor version
update? We get this on nearly every update:

if [[ "${VERSION%.*}" != "${OLD_SPELL_VERSION%.*}" ]]; then
message "This is an ABI incompatible update of mesalib..."
message "Determining which spells need to be recast, this may
take a while."

And I think that it is really not necessary (going from 11.1 to 11.2
now). I would prefer not recasting Xorg and friends all the time. Do
you remember exactly what kind of breakage we had (have, with stable
using mesalib 7.x) when upgrading mesalib?

Perhaps we should just check for xorg-server version, as that is the
only spell actually concerned?

I basically agree. On my my main system, I usually build mesalib from a git checkout, and actually disable the triggers while doing this.
I in some cases I then manually recast xorg-server.

So yes , we need to rethink the mesalib UP_TRIGGERS, espcialy since mesalib-12.0 is about to land.
I actually use it already.

Regards, Treeve

Alrighty then,
