Updated versions of these packages should hit the mirrors soon. Although
they are minor releases, I'd like some testing by other-than-me, because
these are basically new ports...
Some of my old patches were re-implemented upsteam. There were other new
changes affecting cygwin. AND some of my old patches had to be
re-applied by hand. Ugly...I *think* everything is okay, but...some
confirmation would be nice. Especially encrypted/password-protected
round-trip tests, on DOS-mounts.
I use zip and gzip for backup files, where a bug is unlikely to be
detected before the problem is catastrophic. Thus I like to stick to
old, well-tested versions, and am interested in understanding where
problems might arise. I would have thought that the cygwin executable
would be the same as that obtained by taking the standard source and
running make. What is special about cygwin that requires patches?
