comment:5 follow-up: Changed 8 years ago by jpflori

Shouldn't you bump the version number in package-version.txt to trigger a rebuild? (Ok, on system where this is actually needed, ATLAS could not build before...)

comment:6 Changed 8 years ago by jpflori

And document the patch in SPKG.txt...

Replying to jpflori:

There is no need to rebuild ATLAS on every system after this patch, so I see no reason to bump the patchlevel.
