1 update.compare.inc update_process_project_info(&$projects)

Determines version and type information for currently installed projects.

Processes the list of projects on the system to figure out the currently installed versions, and other information that is required before we can compare against the available releases to produce the status report.


$projects: Array of project information from update_get_projects().


core/modules/update/update.compare.inc, line 296
Code required only when comparing available updates to existing data.
