While discussing Maneage with Javier Moldon on the side-lines of the SKA Open Science Schol, an interesting topic came up: if Maneage can accommodate multiple versions of a software.

It can happen for example if a colleague's script (that you want to bring into your shared project) uses a different version of a software from your components and re-writing that script for your version may not be possible within time limits.

It is technically possible in Maneage, but requires several tweaks in low-level components of Maneage (that may not be easy for a new user).

Javier mentioned that in Snakemake each rule can have its own separate environment. This is something that we can also implement in Make (a separate Makefile can have a different shell/environment in its rules for example).

I am defining this task to keep notes on this until an easy-to-implement solution comes up.

Thanks again to Javier for bringing this interesting problem up.
