Do you plan to review this ticket if I fix the conflict?
comment:6 Changed 15 months ago by
Yes. I have asked others this question in the past. Perhaps some people use the code but don't want to review it...

The sardonis patchbot has one relevant doctest fail. It appears that to determine RIF(1,1) < oo
it has to be coerced to the infinity ring but it has no sign. OTOH, RIF(1,1) < oo
is perfectly easily solvable so should not give an error.

Replying to rws:
OTOH,
RIF(1,1) < oo
is perfectly easily solvable so should not give an error.
That doesn't really matter. The coercion model always coerces. And it is the coercion which fails in this case. That is not easy to fix.
