Project mix.lock file being updated seeming randomly

My project recently moved from Elixir 1.9.4 to Elixir 1.10.0 and I’ve now noticed that occasionally I’ll run git status and notice that my mix.lock file has been updated even though I haven’t run any mix related commands.

Has anyone experienced this or has any idea what might be causing it?




Unless you have any other software that touches the mix.lock it should change unless you run mix tasks. A recent a Hex release added a new checksum to the lock entries so that might be what you are seeing, but it’s hard to say without seeing an example of what you mean. Maybe you can show the git diff?

No, @ericmj that’s the ticket and explains what I’m seeing, thank you for taking the time to answer.
