Description
In the current 8.0.beta5
I get the following:
sage: f = x/(1x^2) sage: f.series(x==0, 10) 1*x^2 + 1*x^4 + 1*x^6 + 1*x^8 + Order(x^10) sage: f.series(x==0, 11) 1*x + 1*x^3 + 1*x^5 + 1*x^7 + 1*x^9 + Order(x^11)
This seems to be a regression from somewhere between sage7.5
(where the result is still correct) and sage7.6
.

Thanks a lot for your work, Ralf! Patch LGTM, I'm happy to set this to positive_review
as soon as the patchbot tested it.

For your information, the best way to have a patchbot run immediatly on your prefered ticket is to launch your own patchbot yourself on this ticket...

Usually I'd do that, thanks. :)
However, I'm at a conference and have a very unstable internet connection, so I don't want to build the latest beta on my laptop. And as of a rather unlucky coincidence, my VPN connection to our university servers does not work either, so I also can't start the patchbot we have there.

Running make ptestlong
on my laptop lets the test run through, except for being stuck on the has_mathematica()
call in src/sage/doctest/external.py
. I don't think that this problem is related to the changes on this ticket, so this is positive_review
from me.

As this means that
series
delivers a mathematically wrong result, I've set the priority toblocker
(and this should *really* be fixed before8.0
).
