Re: [ITP] stow
I would like to package and maintain stow for Cygwin. Stow is an
installation manager for local software packages. It installs packages by
creating sets of symlinks from the installed location (e.g. /usr/local) to
a stow directory (e.g. /usr/local/stow/emacs) where the real files live.
This, presumably, should work fine for simple packages, but will be unusable
in conjunction with packages that install DLLs?
If you've found a way around that, then great!
If not, make sure to note so in the readme.
