Using Customized Core Package not in Dev Mode?


I recently made a small tweak to the git-diff package and have issued a pull request for my new feature, but I would like to keep using it before it gets (if it gets) incorporated into the main release. Is my only option to always run in dev mode?

If I have other dev packages that aren’t ready for day-to-day use and that might be causing problems in my dev mode, is there a way to easily/simply/quickly disable them so that I can keep using this one specific package in dev?



There isn’t a simple way to do what you’re suggesting, no. I would probably always run in dev mode and maybe create a script to unlink packages other than the one that I wanted to run modified.
