Frequently Asked Questions

What version of Trident am I running?

To learn what version of Trident you’re running, type:

$ python

If you have a version ending in dev, it means you’re on the development branch and you should also figure out which particular changeset you’re running. You can do this by:

$ cd <path/to/trident>
$ hg id

To figure out what version of yt you’re running, type:

$ yt version

If you’re writing to the mailing list with a problem, be sure to include all of the above with your bug report or question.
