Description

When one does sage -f (or -i) from a remote location, the spkg file is not stored locally in the appropriate place, even if an upgrade of a standard spkg has taken place. As a result, the script spkg/standard/newest_version may fail to detect that the upgrade has taken place.

As a solution, one can either store the full downloaded spkg, or just a placeholder with (almost) the same name as the spkg file.

Or, perhaps, sage -i (-f) can call spkg/standard/newest_version to see if an upgrade is happening, and act accordingly.

This bug has cost me and wdj hours of wasted time, see #8229.

This issue was discussed here: http://groups.google.com/group/sage-devel/browse_thread/thread/89dfb53b34153fbe/605960774d6efa77?#605960774d6efa77

in a nutshell, newest_version should not be used for these tasks, and a new script has to be written.

It's not exactly clear what this bug is about, but given the many changes to sage-spkg, it's a good bet to assume that it's fixed.
