This is regarding the 'failure' I am getting on running 'pytest' after installing the
developer version, as per instructions on this page : https://docs.astropy.org/en/latest/development/workflow/get_devel_version.html
I could successfully run upto the command :
> pip install -e .[test]
given in the section : “Activate” the development version of astropy .
Thereafter, I get in python :
>>> import astropy
On running '> pytest' in my terminal (bash shell) as per instruction in section : Test your development copy ,
I get the following 1 failure at the end :
======================================================== FAILURES =========================================================
____________________________________ [doctest] astropy.utils.introspection.minversion _____________________________________
EXAMPLE LOCATION UNKNOWN, not showing all tests of that example
??? >>> minversion(astropy, '0.4.4')
================================================= short test summary info =================================================
========================== 1 failed, 25031 passed, 757 skipped, 179 xfailed in 240.00s (0:03:59) ==========================
I tried installing the latest developement version again, but to no avail.
I am running python 3.8 in a miniconda virtual environ created for the purpose of
installing the development version explicitly.
Posting here first because not sure if it is a bug or some oversight in installation on my part.
