:1234: Versioned formulae for the Homebrew package manager

3 years after BSD-2-Clause

Homebrew-versions

These formulae provide multiple versions of existing packages or newer versions of packages that are too incompatible to go in homebrew/core yet (e.g. gnupg21).

How do I install these formulae?

Just brew tap homebrew/versions and then brew install <formula>.

If the formula conflicts with one from homebrew/core or another tap, you can brew install homebrew/versions/<formula>.

Acceptable Formulae.

Please note that homebrew/versions is currently in the process of major changes in what we support, how long for and on what basis.

Versions is not intended to be used for any old versions you personally require for your project; formulae submitted here should be expected to be used by a large number of people and still supported by their upstream projects.

You should create your own tap for formulae you or your organisation wishes to control the versioning of or those that do not meet the above standards.

You can read Homebrew’s Acceptable Formulae document here. There are some differences between homebrew/core (which these guidelines cover) and here:

  • Versions formulae must not exceed +/-2 major/minor (not patch) versions from the current stable release.
  • Versions formulae usually do not have head or devel sections.
  • Versions formulae can depend on other versions formulae.
  • If copied from homebrew/core prior formulae please fix any issues raised by brew audit --strict.
  • If a newer/older version exists in homebrew/core please add a conflicts_with line, like this.

Troubleshooting

First, please run brew update and brew doctor.

Second, read the Troubleshooting Checklist.

If you don’t read these it will take us far longer to help you with your problem.
