Hi,

I don't understand the difference between the sage version and singular upstream.
Is it possible to use upstream sources and use patches like other packages?

Hi,

The version shipped in sage is based on a fork of Matthias. It is essentially fixes
for building on windows for which he had PR not included in a release at the time.
From my own tests we can just use vanilla singular-4.2.0p1.

Hi Isuru,

I don't like the situation either. The info is in SPKG.txt

As soon as you modify autoconf /automake files, it becomes infeasible to talk about "patches", as they are just way too big to be useful.

Thanks all for the responses. I'll go with singular-4.2.0 for conda since I'm not building singular for windows.

https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/31642 takes us to a clean upstream (4.2.0p3, just released). Needs review
