Description bgdnlp 2022-01-19 15:32:02 UTC
Run `pkg install node`, it will install node17 (no npm). Now run `pkg install npm`. It uninstalls node17 and install npm and node16.

I might be wrong, but I would expect www/node and www/npm (no version) to install the same versions.

As far as I can tell the problem is that "npm" is set to depend on "node" (no version), but the default node version in bsd.default-versions.mk is set to LTS:


which right now results in the conflict described. If it's considered a conflict. I know I can edit the defaults, I'm talking about the packages that pkgng installs.

So the question actually is, shouldn't www/node and the build defaults point to the same node version?
