I recently did a fresh install of cygwin on a machine. I noticed a couple of small issues.
The Info files for libc are included in two places, firstly in the package "cygwin-1.5.19-4.tar.bz2". They are also in "cygwin-doc-1.4-3.tar.bz2".
One of the info files is split into three ie "libc.info", "libc.info-1" and "libc.info-2". The other is gzipped - "libc.info.gz".
Even accounting for this the two files have slightly different contents.
In the tar package "tar-1.15.1-4.tar.bz2" there are three info files "tar.info.gz", "tar.info-1" and "tar.info-2".
"tar.info.gz" is a compressed info file containing the whole manual. "tar.info-1" and "tar.info-2" contain the whole manual again split into two pieces.
They are misnamed, the first part of an info file should be called "tar.info", the second "tar.info-1", the third "tar.info-2" etc.
Also the tar package does not install a man page - there again, I don't know if it should.
Thanks for the good work,
