Re: Minor oddities when doing a full install from scratch [attn lyx maintainer]

That seems odd to me, too, but I don't know what the problem was.

That's because the lyx maintainer needs to upload a new version of lyx
that provides a shell script instead of a directory as
/etc/postinstall/  It has been brought up before, with no response;
is the maintainer even paying attention?

That was overkill.  Unless specifically requested, sending more than about
100kb of attachments (ie. a typical cygcheck output size) is bad
netiquette; your 839kb clogged lots of inboxes today.
