Could you point me to it. Joey's attic Git?

The official setup in Debian:

     xdelta:  /usr/bin/xdelta (version 1.1.3)
     xdelta3: /usr/bin/xdelta3

I think we should ensure compatibility between operating systems by
having similar setup.


as today
$ cygcheck -cd |grep xdelta
xdelta                                  3.0.9-1

To avoid backwards, my proposal is

xdelta-3.0.9-2   (removing the xdelta link to xdelta3)

if we agree that going backward in not a problem,


is also fine for me.

Your preference ?
