We have a group of people using the Cygwin command line tools (not compilers).
Because we all want to use the same copy, I do a "download from internet" and
make the copy available to everyone. We try not to upgrade two often to avoid
the effort of testing new versions. In this scenario, I want to make sure that I
get a good, stable copy.
Are there "better" and "worse" times to take a copy of cygwin? ( It's always
"good" to download cygwin :) Some Open Source tools have even and odd
numbered releases that tell you something about the stability of the release.
Do you think that it's better to grab a copy just before the release of the new
cygwin.dll ( and be stuck with an old copy) , or just after ( and be stuck with
a buggy copy) ?
