How to update package without updating version


#1

Hi,
I have published a package and now I want to update its readme file without updating the version but it is not possible to do so. Does anyone know how will it be possible.


#2
meteor publish --update

Hi, be careful by doing so because no one already have installed your package will receive that update. The update procedure looks for changes to version-id and if not changed no update.

Now you could say … ok … README … not so important but think about:

Update README = Update PACKAGE = Update VERSION

1.1.1.1 (last identifier is for absolutly minor but not functional important changes)

We only use meteor publish --update within a couple a minutes after deploying and getting some typos when reading on the web.

Just my 2cents

Note that it is impossible to update the actual package code after publishing - only the readme and description.
